Photographer Focus: Cecilio Barrantes

Cecilio's photography oozes cool.

His photos look like they came straight out of the edgiest Urban Outfitters catalog ever, and I want everything his subjects are wearing, girls and guys alike. My personal favorite type of photography to see and shoot are portraits, and Cecilio gets totally creative with the genre by using interesting composition and incorporating special effects, which totally work to his advantage. We can easily see him following in the footsteps of some of the fashion photog greats that inspire him, and can't wait to see what comes next from our main man

what makes a terrible photo

Things that I have seen many times before.

Well this is hard to explain, I guess I’m a shy person, so the best way to express myself is trough the lens, and my infinite passion for photography.
