Sigma sd Quattro RAW development: what’s better, SPP or Lightroom?

I’ve tinkered with Sigma sd Quattro’s DNG support for quite some time now. On paper it’s great to have the option to develop Sigma RAWs in other programs. But what can you expect if you shoot DNGs with your sd Quattro and subsequently develop them in Lightroom? Is it silly to expect an equivalent output ...

Sometimes staying inside feels just better…

Autumn has finally arrived: the chilly wind, some rain every now and then, and days that become shorter and shorter. Of course, enjoying this season equipped with rubber boots, a rain-check and a cap can be nice, as I showed to you on my last two photo walks. Sometimes, however, sitting at the window sill ...

“In Vienna’s Prater the trees blossom again”

When you think of Vienna’s Prater as a non-local, first of all the Luna Park with the extraordinary carousels will come to your mind. You may almost forget that the entire huge area around, with its forests and the nature reserve, is also part of it. Since I’m particularly impressed by the Prater’s atmosphere in ...

Sigma sd Quattro Review

SD Quattro is Sigma’s first interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera. In a sense it is a balancing act between the wish of many Sigma DP camera users for a DP camera with interchangeable lenses and reality, in which Sigma SD users, who naturally want to be able to use their existing SA mount lenses, mustn’t be forgotten ...

Looking backstage: the ways how Magnum photographers work

Finally it’s here! My absolutely favorite photography ranking of the year. The finalists of the third Comedy Wildlife Photography Award were announced a couple of days ago and I also wasn’t disappointed this year. Paul Joynson-Hicks (founder) and Tom Sullam (jury member and director of the award), who call this award the best and funniest ...

Autumn portraits

A couple of days ago I took you to meadows covered by the mist on a rainy, murky walk through the forest. I showed you all the wonderful facets this season offers. However, on my long walk my focus was not only nature itself. I was accompanied by a friend who also posed as a ...

“People Matching Artworks”

By chance I came across the photographer Stefan Draschan some days ago, a man who obviously spends a lot of time in the museums I also enjoy visiting every now and then. On his blog “People Matching Artworks”, the Austrian photographer presents photos where people form a symbiotic relationship with the pictures. Do the colors ...
