Trapped

Seen a few of these scanned type shots and I just HAD to try it out for myself. I've come across two which I absolutely love:

 

- www.flickr.com/photos/oliviabossert/4796194894/in/photost...

- www.flickr.com/photos/lewisstevenson/4276123501/

 

Both were used as my inspiration for this "claustrophobia" themed photo. In photography class I am suppose to bring in two images which represent a fear(s) of mine. I would say that my claustrophobia is more of a minor fear then an actual phobia. It's only in certain conditions and particularly small spaces where I start to freak out, other than that it isn't a big problem.

 

So, onto the picture. I do really love it, and it did take some time to get it just as I wanted it, but it was worth it. I tweeked it a little, here and there, and increased the contrast to make it as dramatic as possible. Something which bothered me at first was how dirty the copier machine was. The finger smudges just show how many attempts it took before this one!

But please let me know what you think of it :)
