Had an idea involving a pair of handcuffs and no not what you are thinking
I have watched a lot of ganster films over the years which gave me the idea for this shot.
My son modelled for me with the handcuffs, he stood against our front room wall and I placed my single elemental softbox to his side to create deep shadows as I knew this was going to be for mono.
The hand sign was to add interest and is also notorious with american gangs to symbolise which gang they are from.
Hopefully only focusing on the central part of the body and not being able to see the face and expression gets the viewer thinking of what is going on around the person.
As my son is quite young he didn't have the much needed tattoo's to really give that mexicano look.
Thanks for looking.
