Profotos Staff Evaluation:
Intriguing lighting, dramatic
angles, and compelling composition are just some of the attributes
which you will see within the porfolio of professional photographer,
Christopher Revon. Several of the images included in Christopher's
portfolio are perfect examples of the flawless execution of traditional
compositional "rules" and elements. Along with these
traditionally composed images, there are many others in Christopher's
portfolio which break the "rules" and belong to a completely
different class of photographic composition.
The image on this page is a great example of Christopher's
mastery of compositional skills in photography. Within this image
are several elements which work together to produce a very strong
photograph. We will attempt to emphasize these elements by methodically
critiquing this powerful image: the dim lighting falling on the
subject adds a sense of mystery and intrigue to this image, as
it creates a very "soft" composition, which allows
the shadows to fall off into darkness; the specular highlight
on the subject's nose creates a point of "focus" where
the viewer's eyes may begin to explore the image; analogous color
is employed within the image which adds greatly to the photograph's
mystery and mood, and finally; the composition is classic, with
a tight crop of the subject's face, which is perfectly positioned
within the frame to allow it room to "look into" on
the right side of the frame.
Although we do not usually go into this type of descriptive
detail while writing reviews of photographers' works on Profotos,
we feel this is the best way to emphasize just how talented Christopher
is in his photography. This is the type of critiquing our staff
employs behind the scenes of Profotos, each time we consider
a photographer for inclusion on the site.
As we stated in the first paragraph of this review, you will
find several examples of this type of "traditional"
composition within Christopher's portfolio. You will also see
photographs in Christopher's portfolio which break out of the
traditions and rules of photography. These non-traditional images
are very striking, incredible images which are sure to have in
impact upon your vision and understanding of photographic style.
Be sure to take your time while browsing through Christopher
Revon's portfolio - incredible images like these take time to
explore and appreciate!
