I love the colors, the soft out of focus background, the off-center composition, and the general pleasant feeling this photo gives off. It was taken with a Canon 135mm f2 lens with a wide open aperture to pull the subjects out of the photo and melt away the background. This is my favorite lens for taking candid portraits. It’s light. It focuses extremely fast. And it’s not huge, white, or conspicuous like the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II, which is a fantastic lens, but just stands out too far in a crowd.
