10 January


I wanted to portray an aspect of greed in this image and one of the most common – if not the most common – is that of love of money and the avarice that this brings. I used my own hand and fired the camera on a tripod with my other. The light on the scene is given by an LED torch with black gaffa tape covering most of the lens, to give a snoot-type effect.
I then processed it in Photoshop increasing the tonal contrast,to give a semi HDR effect.

Nikon D800

  1. This reminds me of Fagin. I like the way the hand and money are lined and wrinkled as though they belong together. Great use of lighting giving this a dark/underhand/unattractive air which fits with avarice. Very evocative.
