Brazil - Soccer at Sunset

During a five-week stay in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I spent time at Ipanema Beach shooting photos of groups playing soccer. On an especially beautiful evening, I found a group of young soccer players who graciously let me take photos of them for almost an hour. Although the subject matter is the same, each photo has a different composition and nuance, and the light was just remarkable. I am happy to share the passion, beauty, and skill of these players as the sun goes down over Two Brothers (Dois Irmãos) in the background. While the beach is a popular spot to shoot photos in Brazil, you don't always get amazing subjects and light like this!
