2021 15 Trapped 1069 marco ciavolino post

A 52 Picks Selection!

This is our interpretation of a classic noir photo for the movie "Trapped" from 1949. My neighbors, Anthony and Randi, donned their costumes for this classic remake. Just had to procure a suit and tie from Goodwill, a fedora and wig from Amazon. And a toy pistol from Richards Variety Store in Atlanta

See Behind the Scenes shots and original poster below.

And you can watch the movie here:

We've had a few challenges based on technique recently, so this week we're going in a different direction: emotion — specifically the feeling of being trapped. Your photo could perhaps evoke a sense of vulnerability or isolation (not such a crazy concept these days, ay?) Or, you can go a metaphorical route like being "trapped at your desk", or something simple and humorous like eggs going into a pan, or showing a high streak number on 52Frames. It doesn't have to be complex! You might consider allowing the viewer to extrapolate from your image and complete the story via their own imagination (read: think to yourself, "could the viewer understand my story without reading my caption text?") Think about composition and angles - extreme angles will give different emotions - shooting from above and shooting wide gives the feeling of vulnerability and being lost, while shooting wide from below will give you the opposite effect (sometimes referred to as the superhero angle, not what we would want for this challenge.)
