What better way to test out a new telephoto lens than in the company of one of the world’s best tennis players. These shots were taken from deep inside the stands at the Kooyong tennis stadium.
Even though players like Federer succeed in making the impossible appear effortless, these photos capture the intense, tunnel-vision like levels of concentration that are called upon when it comes to formulating a game plan and then executing it perfectly.
These stills also capture the essence of the many moments of stillness and quiet that exemplify tennis. Those moments further accentuated by the mirage like quality of the summer heat, preceding the explosive action when it truly is game-on.
