My wife suggested we remove ourselves from our comfort-zone and head out-of-town and shoot from the hip. A few hotel bookings were made and soon we were on the road with the Sony A7R2, the new ZEISS Batis 2.8/135. I wanted to be able to shoot on the go but still be able to control the ambient light to achieve the look that I wanted.
Going back a generation it used to be sailors, prostitutes and prisoners that had tattoos. Nowadays, it is just as likely to be the Mum outside the school gate. And sadly, over half the people would think less of someone because they have a tattoo.
Playing with focus and blur, natural colors and a harmonious bokeh – practiced photographers use these design elements to give their portraits that special something. What a good thing, then, that a new member has just joined the Batis family: the ZEISS Batis 2.8/135 is an ideal tool for creating atmospheric, unique portraits.
