Making his own style from some the basics of art theory is really impressive. Eric Fredine is a landscape photography, who in his work uses a format which really works well for his photography. Some may say that all of his pictures are kinda all the same. But for a trained eye, a person who takes more time to look at Eric Fredine’s work and has some knowledge of the basics of art theory, you can see a lot of little elements used that will make you busy for a while.
The first noticed thing is, that he isn’t using a usual photographic format as in landscape, portrait, golden cut or any other. He’s using the polaroid like one which is 1:1. Today photographers usually use the basic landscape one, or the even bigger panorama format so that that can get as much as possible into a photo with a wide lens. Eric Fredine is different and his main focus is in my opinion on photographing the figure and composition of a landscape. His goal is to take a picture, that is in harmony with the rules of art theory so it becomes pleasant to the eye.
