Profotos Staff Evaluation:
The world as seen through the
lenses of Eduardo Barrento is strikingly different than what
we are accustomed to seeing in our everyday lives. Through his
lenses, Barrento sees a world of beauty and purity in nature
which often goes unnoticed.
The macro images in Eduardo's portfolio are very captivating
with their unusual angles and lighting styles. While many photographers
are satisfied with just obtaining a 1:1 macro ratio (lifesize
reproduction) in their images, Eduardo goes much further in creating
striking images, which are technically and aesthetically difficult
to produce. This added sense of perfection is readily evident
in all of Eduardo's macro images, as the details in his images
are simply "perfect".
Not only does Eduardo's nature portfolio capture the delicate
intracacies of the macro photography world, but it also does
a great job of exhibiting the life-size world of wildlife as
well. Included in Eduardo's portfolio are several examples of
exceptional wildlife and bird photography, where the choice of
angle, lighting, and overall composition, work together to create
stunning images of wildlife.
We all can take some lessons in nature photography, just by
studying the work in Eduardo's incredible portfolio. Photographers
such as Eduardo, remind us of just how fragile our Earth is and
we should all do our part in protecting it. Thank you, Eduardo,
for your passion to reveal the delicate nature of our planet.
Now, if we could only do our part in protecting it…
