Above is a man, slowly engulfed in a paint emulsion as he is surrounded by, frankly, overgrown hands. A melancholic expression sits upon his visage – perhaps an expression of ennui, as if being surrounded by a paint cloud is no novel event for him. Whatever the case, this image was a fun experimentation of setting and color. With a needle (sourced from a diabetic), a syringe, some paint, a fish tank, the figurines, and a dream, we created a display which both managed to capture a partial truth of the human condition, and some beautiful flow effects. I will leave the green man in his suit of despair, and instead inspect his hat of paint.
In terms of processing, the image was dark and quite grainy. From it’s RAW format, I messed with the RBG curve until I found a pleasing brightness. I also applied a denoising and demosaicing filter to the image, in order to reduce some of the artifacts created by the high ISO.
