Erik Reis is a Portuguese stock photographer who has recently created his own studio called, “IKOstudio”. He is not specifically specialized or restrained to a certain form of photography but instead photographs a wide variety of objects and scenes. However, from this wide variety, I find that his landscape pictures are of most interest. One of his photographs that I find to be breath-taking is one of the rough coastline, (located below). I like that the staggering characteristic of the cliffs drag your eyes deep into the image all the way to the tip of the farthest cliff. Although the image is very dull with color, only having shades and a slight tint of blue from the ocean, it provides a more cautionary emotion that fits well with the knife-staggering cliffs and strong waves crashing along them.
Another photograph that I found to be very interesting was one of thin wooden sticks protruding out of the still water that was reflecting the warm colors of the horizon, (located below). Many of the sticks appear to be longer and the upper halves of the nets appear to be entirely circular because of their reflection. This is the reason I like this photograph; it confuses the eye and forces it to search and focus for the difference between reality and reflection.
