I have had lots of people request this picture without the FRAME. I have uploaded this as my first photo on 500px with the frame, so here it is without! I thought of the idea of being set free.I didn’t want to be cliche and non-original so I knew I couldn’t use things like cages; birds being set free from a cage.. etcI have a tattoo on my shoulder of a feather and birds flying around – I thought this would be perfect for the concept. I decided to take a picture of my back and have more birds coming out of it as if they were being set free.I wanted to do this idea because at the time I guess I was thinking about the freedom I had; I was living an hour away from home in a shared house with roommates – and it felt as if I was being set free.I try to create photos around story lines – so they are mostly conceptual. This is also a self-portrait – because at the time I was living an hour away from my friends and wasn’t used to taking pictures of other people. I do eventually get there – and they will be posted. I have this with and without the frame – I liked the frame because I felt it looked plain without it.
