Nobody's putting a gun to your head. by JakeHegel Nobody's putting a gun to your head. by JakeHegel
Self-portrait.

Experimenting with raw, realistic situations. I realized I've missed taking photos that really strike emotions like when I first started photography years ago. I've gotten into a bad habit of only creating super complex photos/manipulations, and so this is the beginning of getting back to why I began taking photos: simplified and stripped down, human emotion. It was really an eerie feeling to be faced with a gun, despite knowing it wasn't loaded.. which helped translate the emotion in a very real way.

Hey! Awesome shot man!
I recently used it as a reference image for an illustration. Thought you might be interested. :)
Thanks for the cool shot! Took me ages to find a side profile that suited what I had in mind haha.

This is one of those images that, after you see them, make you think about them for a long time.
