It's been another busy week here at Soleheaven having received new styles from Nike, New Balance, Vans and Saucony. Lightroom is telling me that I've taken almost 2000 since Monday, so there's a lot of photos to choose from.
I've decided to select this on-the-foot (OTF) shot of the Vans Old Skool being modelled by Tom for this week's focus. It was captured on a fire escape in the city which had these hand rails surrounding it. I had Tom sit on some whilst resting his legs agains the railings opposite. I feel like the pose is very fitting for the brand and the sneaker, suggesting that the wearer has a carefree attitude and is prepared to be a little 'Off the Wall'.
The minimal colour palette allows the lines created by the railings to help guide the eyes towards the sneakers. Shooting on a set of stairs allowed me to have a lower perspective which again is something a little different.
Even though I've taken thousands of sneaker photos within a radius of just a couple of miles, it's a great feeling when we find something fresh from an old location.
