Ok... so this is a trick shot. I'm really stretching the rules to their limits here but I just don't have the equipment for this kind of shot. Originally I took a photograph of myself with my guitar walking away, it was very rough - but that was the point, the pose was what mattered. I then edited the photograph so that I was the only thing remaining in shot and made myself completely blacked out. I then printed this off on a white sheet of paper and backlit it with a lamp for the effect. Yes it could have been done easily in a studio, but I just don't have the space.

The pose of your subject looks terribly unnatural and even painful to me

I cant place where the influence for this image comes from but I know you have captured it well - good luck

Very emotive photo. Great silhouette work with a crisp outline and interesting lighting. I understand the idea of the musicial walking away with his head down, but it just dosn't work well for me I don't find the pose to be very flattering. Otherwise very nice silhouette.

An unusual shot. The lighting makes me want a sharp silhouette and it is a tad soft. Yet, that may well suite the theme of the picture as he walks off into who knows what. Like the composition and lighting, focus doesn't work for me.

Can't tell if it is a silhouette. Looks more like a shadow.
