In this editorial, led by two women, homage is paid to individuality and fullness that transcends the conventional concept of romantic love. Each image, conceived as a visual essay in fashion, narrates a story of autonomy and intimate connection, revealing the richness and mystery of a life lived outside the paradigms of traditional romance, in an unconventional context for Valentine’s Day.

The careful selection of costumes and scenographies challenges entrenched conventions around Valentine’s Day, emphasizing the diversity of experiences beyond the notion of a couple. Each image becomes an expression of individuality and intimate connection, breaking down barriers imposed by social and cultural norms.

For this session, a Canon 5D mk IV with a Canon 24/105 mm lens was chosen, a versatile combination that allowed for capturing both general shots and close-ups with great detail and sharpness. Familiarity with this equipment ensured precise and efficient technical execution.

The decision to conduct the editorial in a studio was based on the need to highlight styling and artistic elements without distractions. The white background and soft lighting directed attention to the essential elements, while the strategic use of the color red added an additional emotional intensity to the images.

Artistic influences that shaped this editorial trace back to the history of art and literature, where love and heartbreak have been eternal sources of inspiration. The representation of intense feelings and profound experiences related to love finds expression in each image, seeking to convey an emotionally rich and immersive narrative.

In the post-production stage, the focus was on enhancing all artistic and stylistic elements to reinforce the message of individuality and fullness in love. Subtle adjustments were made to enhance the models’ expressions and emphasize the emotional tone of each image, maintaining coherence with the overall project vision.

Collaboration within the team played a fundamental role in the development of the editorial. From the outset, each member contributed ideas and personal influences, enriching the visual narrative with a variety of perspectives and creative visions. During the photoshoot, continuous dialogue was encouraged to ensure cohesion and the fulfillment of the shared artistic vision.
