Have you ever felt that the world is turning its back on you, that you're all alone and not a living soul to talk to? Well this concept is actually more common than people realize. Often, you can find people in the middle of us, feeling alone and sad. Dont be one of those arrows that turns away
A really fun picture to make. This concept itself came to my mind after i was checking my cellphone
At first i wondered how i should represent the people/mass that's suppose to face away. Well i thought about printing faces, but thats was quickly discarded. I ended up with the arrows, wich i printed out on 2 A4 pages and manually cut them out, wohoo, was kinda boring, believe me
The shoot was realy straight forward. I desided to stay away from the flash and use some directed light instead for a more moody feel. Back into Photoshop i straightened out the errors, fixed the picture in the phone, wich is a stock photo from sxc.hu, and smoothed out the texture wich the phone and arrows was resting on. After that i desided to go with the quad tones, making this a semi-black & white, with black, brown, light brown and white making up the major tones.
After a quick touch with levels and some general sharpening, the piece was ready to go
The picture was shot with my Canon 5D with the good ol 24-70mm f2.8L USM lens and edited using Photoshop cs2.

Hope you guys like it. I had a blast making it
