This a rework of an old image from 2008 . Just playing with Lightroom and Photoshop CS4, trying to give it a new mood.
I had made this shot for my son’s and his friends short-lived T-shirt business.
It was staged of course, and my son Jonathan was not really doing what it looks like he was doing… He was only squirting water from a plastic bottle onto the wall with his right hand, while his left hand was showing the viewer a 16-year-old teenager’s rebelliousness (his own initiative). Reiver in their business name meant rebel to them, and Phenix stood for eternal, like eternally rebel. The goal was to create a provoking image.
Below is my original, unprocessed shot, made with my Nikon D60 and AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR.
