Jardin Majorelle – the Blue Garden

After the Djemaa al Fna, where you’re about to get 1000 different impressions ranging from snake charmers to mobile shops and unique odors, and the souqs, a showcase of interesting handcrafts, there’s of course a lot more to ...

Marrakech with the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art lens

This year I already felt like getting on the plane in January to escape the daily routine for a couple of days. I wanted to go to a city where I wouldn’t have to rush from sight to sight but where I can simply enjoy the atmosphere. I wanted to stroll through the narrow lanes ...

Photo walk in the snowy mountains

After the first long-awaited snowfall I didn’t want to stay in my apartment any longer last weekend. In order to have light and flexible baggage to carry this time I decided once again after a long time for my compact all-round lens, the SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM. With this lens I had ...

Finally some snow

For some weeks I’ve been searching for winter desperately, for some snow on the trees, for some icicles hanging down the rooftops, for children walking through the winter landscape wearing snowshoes or trailing their toboggans.

When ice crystals dance

Driving home for Christmas“. Every year I listen to this song on the radio in December, I’m really looking forward to Christmas, the season of the year where I can go home to my family and find plenty of time for everyone without being stressed.

Searching for winter – Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Review

In the city this winter is gray. Everything’s gray, the tall buildings, the sky and even sometimes the people appear somewhat gray to me because of the murky atmosphere. The snow never remains and that’s why there’s never a real winter feeling, except for our cold fingers and a red nose. That’s also the reason ...

Portrait Photography with the Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

One Model – one Location – one Lens. To have the right equipment for my upcoming photoshoot, I look through my objectives for a suitable portrait lens. Back then, as a beginner in the photography, I bought the light strong Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens. Now, I unpacked it again and to have ...

Cats of Istanbul

For me, there has to be a city trip at least once in a year! This year it was time for Istanbul, but before I start to tell you what I liked the most about the city, how great the food tastes there, about all the great impressions and the amazing photo motifs I came ...

Berlin Wonderland

During the day there aren’t many hours left where you can sit in the sun and enjoy the daylight. At the beginning of this week, however, while strolling around Kreuzberg I found some time to shoot some photos in the evening atmosphere with my camera which was equipped with the SIGMA Art 35mm f/1.4 DG ...
