Part of my 'mini world' series. David and Goliath is a well known fable. I decided I wanted to create my own interpretation of the infamous story. The background is a dinner tray which I have covered in soil, bits of grass and a few stones. I Put my arm with a stone in my palm across the frame and remotely fired the shutter creating the illusion of a giant's hand. Similarly, I then took a self portrait with a dressing gown cord in my right hand to act as a slingshot. All natural lighting, shot outside on my terrace on an overcast day so I didn't have much shadows to deal with. Once the image was put together, I tweaked the colours slightly to get the final look I was after.
