FGR...Profound photography

Rogue Players... Tribute/respect influence

 

I was flipping through a photography book (The Photo Book) looking for pictures I could attempt. Paying tribute to others' pictures is pretty hard!

 

The original photo is by Arno Rafael Minkkinen, a self portrait.

 

I consider myself pretty flexible, but even I had a hard time getting into the correct position and getting the shot with my remote.

 

I changed the colors to sepia again and then decreased the saturation.

 

I like this photo mainly because when you first look at it, you can't really tell what it is. The original photo makes me wonder if he is emotionally hurt. It is like a self-preservation, protective stance.
