SIGMA 135mm F1.8 Art

Hey guys, Some days ago I could hold another new lens in my hands and I couldn’t wait to test it! I’m talking about the SIGMA 135mm F1.8 from the highly popular and much-appreciated Art series of the Japanese manufacturer. Since today was the first day that I had enough time to focus on the ...

Visiting the Nonseum

Today I’d like to take you to a museum of another kind: the Nonseum! Sounds funny – and it is, in the best possible way! Elevation simulators for folks living in the lowlands, or a sandwich box for veal sausages, a historic collection of buttons with Napoleon’s precious button hole, or a collection of socks ...

Here comes another award for Sigma!

 Or, to be more exact, two awards! A couple of days ago the TIPA Awards were awarded and once again SIGMA was able to convince with its new product series. Thus the company’s success story of the past few years when it received two or, respectively, three awards continues. By now, all of you know ...

SIGMA 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro

Hey guys, Today I’d like to share my thoughts about a lens I’ve had for quite some time now. Yet I’ve been using it extremely rarely for the past couple of months, perhaps even for the last two years. I’m talking about the SIGMA 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro! For my test images, ...

Some Instagram feeds for you that are a bit different

 Hey guys, last time I showed you Instamgram feeds that make you a travel-addict by taking our thoughts to solitary beaches, impressive miracles of nature and bustling cities. For today I had an idea that was a bit different: These three accounts will make you laugh or they may even make you shake your head. ...

Sculptures or photo spot?

Hey guys, Today I’d like to take you for a little walk to Burgenland, to be more precise, to Sankt Margarethen. The village has a quarry and a sculpture park where you can take some longer walks with interesting things to see. Several big pieces of art made of stone are spread all over the ...

Original or imitation? When you stumble across the Eiffel Tower in China…

Every one of us who grew up with little brothers or sisters probably knows the feeling when the little ones keep imitating you. That can be very annoying, but in most cases this will stop at some point. When I saw photos of Chinese imitations of famous European sights and even entire cities for the ...

Visual storytelling: When photographs tell stories

Most of the time, photographs are more than just a capture of a fleeting moment. Sometimes motifs seem nothing but randomly chosen and like snapshots. But many photographs underlie a certain concept which is made to display and convey a story. There is a reason for the well-known saying that “a picture is worth a ...

E-waste becomes art

We’re all producing horrendous amounts of electronic waste. Countless electronic devices are easily disposed as they are just not repaired but replaced with new stuff! To highlight this big issue photographer Benjamin Von Wong had an idea to open the eyes of many people. It’s about an elaborate work of art, about surreal portraits with ...
