Zeiss 135mm f2 apo sonnar manual focus lens

Sometimes hangin’ out and havin’ fun is what it’s all about.

I love the colors in this photo. I love the sharp sharp focus on the ball and the shoe. I love the body language between these two guys… it reminds me of the good old days hanging out when we were young with nothing to worry about. It’s just a fun image… that happened to be quite difficult to take.

I used a Zeiss 135mm f2 manual focus lens for this because it allowed me to stay far enough away and not disturb the energy of the scene, but also because it produces color profiles and super sharp focus like this. I shot it wide open at f/2, and let all of my breath leave me before I pressed the shutter to be as steady as possible to get that crisp focus point on the ball. This was late in the evening, so the shutter speed was fairly long at 1/40, so this was one of those times when I had to brace myself up against a street lamp to keep myself steady enough to get a crisp shot.
