Venezuelan graphic designer and photographer currently living in Buenos Aires Danny Duben @dannyduben presents this gorgeous fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Lorenzo Casas @lorocasas represented by We Love Models @welovemodels.ar and Universe Scout Street Hunting @universescoutandstreethunting.
The editorial focuses on Lorenzo’s energy, “I had a very good connection from the beginning and he was very confident in front of the lens. He has a very elegant and stylized profile, that’s why, for me, projects a subtly marked innocence in his eyes so confident in himself,” says the photographer.
The main idea was to portray Lorenzo in the most natural way possible. In order to do this, the photographer only used the sunlight that came through his window and he captured it while they talked to get the most authentic of it. “We decided to take a walk to complement the shooting with some shots under the sunlight and I really felt very satisfied, we got very good portraits.”
For this work Danny Duben used a Canon T5i camera together with a 50mm f1.8 and 24mm 1.4 lens, allowing him to have a selective focus on some very marked features. The shoot took place at the photographer’s house, and the outdoor photos were taken in the ecological reserve of the city of Buenos Aires.
“I like to capture the most authentic side of people, in the most natural way possible. I feel that I achieved this with Lorenzo, that’s why I included many close shots, no matter how close I was to him, he never felt intimidated by my lens.”
Intended to showcase innocence, nostalgia, naturalness, confidence, and a bit of joy too, the model felt really confident, calm, collected and self-confident, what clearly shows through these gorgeous images.
