Character study portraits do not necessarily flatter the subject in the generally accepted sense. Often, they are created to reveal the beauty of the character within each subject using lines, textures, and tonalities. These are among Oscar Lozoya's favorite type of portraiture because they allow him to experiment with lighting, posing, expressions and concepts that he otherwise might not pursue on a commercial portrait.
A Little About What Goes Into Creating an Oscar Lozoya Fine Art Print:
Oscar Lozoya personally controls each Fine Art Image at every step. This begins with the concept, selecting any props that are to be used, then directing the subject, light design, the exposure and the printing process.
During the course of his career as a full-time professional photographer, Oscar Lozoya has refined his style of intricate lighting both in his studio as well as on location.
After the session, each image is meticulously hand printed by Oscar Lozoya, employing a method he has developed to produce the print the qualities he desires. Finished images are printed on the highest quality exhibition archival, fiber based paper. Oscar will spend as much time as needed working to refine each image to his exacting standards. This labor intensive process contributes to his signature style.
Oscar Lozoya Fine Art Prints are then mounted and matted using museum rag board, the edition is recorded - only then does it receive Oscar's signature.
