ANDREW OLDERSHAW PROLIXUS LUMINIS FLOWER MAIN 2 X430

By Andrew Oldershaw

I love portrait work. I love the idea of capturing something in the blink of an eye that might only exist for that one suspended moment in time. A look. A gesture. In this case, my very brave friend allowed me to splatter him in paint for a little series I did with him. The rest of the series is a little more serious than this one. The little purple flower was a random last-minute addition that somehow switched the tone of the image entirely, to something rather comedic and cartoonish. His expressive eyes certainly helped here. This was shot in natural light, which really helped enhance the colors of the paint.

– Advocate.com will be featuring a new photo from Andrew Oldershaw every Friday. Check back next week.
