“Interesting story behind this sneaker. I was initially going to pass, but after spending many hours gazing upon IG shots, upon IG shots and the said sneaker passing my ‘cop test’ I decided to finally go for it.
I headed to UPthere to try my luck. I came pretty late and was resigned to missing out, but out of nowhere came a hail mary assist from non other than the Sneaker Freaker Don himself — Woody!
I ended up with a size 9, which I subsequently traded down for an 8.5 with one of the lads in the line. Long story short, met total strangers in the line-up, ended up with new set of mates that share the same passion for sneakers, beer and photography.
The composition was driven by my enjoyment of capturing shots of sneakers ‘above ground.’ I like the way it develops the depth of field and gives the shot a feeling of action. The shot also, is completely unedited.This was achieved using the Sony a7ii and their entry 1.8 50mm prime lens.”
