I had read a bit about going to the Empire State Building and shooting with a tripod. Apparently things had changed a bit especially with their increased security. They confiscated my tripod. I was later able to get it back but I knew it would make my night shooting more challenging. I had two lenses with me: Zeiss 85mm Otus 1.4 and Zeiss 55mm 1.8. I set my Sony a7r2 settings to manual focus, timer shutter and Optical Stabilization On. I focused carefully using focus preview and checked the shots afterwards for sharpeness. I think I did ok. #empirestatebuilding.
