Sigma 135mm F1.8 is fun to shoot with


It was cold and it was cloudy and getting a kick out of photography was almost impossible. But after I took a couple of photos and viewed them on the back LCD, I was seized by the desire to continue walking and shooting. The 135mm has this characteristic quality of capturing creamy bokeh on the one hand and quite compressed looking photos on the other. The latter appears unusual, especially outside of portrait photography, and as soon as you develop a taste for it, you want to find out what everything around you looks like, when photographed through a lens such as this one.

Ordinary scenes, cares, buildings, everything looks just a little bit different. It’s like being a photographic surgeon with a scalpel in hand, carving out just those details out, which you find really interesting. And it’s not due to the focal length alone, because I have shot with even longer lenses, such as the extremely long 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM Contemporary. I, however, have never had this feeling like I have with the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 Art before. Even though I almost never do portraits, I’m getting my money’s worth with this lens. It’s a lot of fun to shoot with. 🙂
