Challenge: Freedom II (Advanced Editing II)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: my bedroom
Date: Jul 5, 2004
Galleries: Abstract, Emotive
Date Uploaded: Jul 5, 2004

Taken in a makeshift studio in my room.
Used white card as backing, halogen as light and adjusted levels, shadows, colour in PS and cropped to accent focus.

This image represents Freedom on many levels.
First, we have the most obvious - the undone handcuffs. Then the blank dogtag - either someone has had the slate wiped clean or it is a freedom from oppression. Then in the background, the electrical tape - it poses no threat of binding so there is freedom in that.
Lastly, the photo is done in a pretty "free" style :)

Another anit-thesis photo. Sorry, but this does not say freedom to me.

Not keen on the lighting but an interesting still life.
