Where this journey took me…

Hey guys, In one of my last articles, in which I told you my thoughts about the SIGMA 85mm F.14 DG HSM Art, you could also see some sample images which apparently hadn’t been taken in our area. So far, however, I haven’t told you where that journey took me. I wanted to wait until ...

Beautiful day after the temperature rollercoaster

Today was the first day that I felt fit enough to go for a photo walk, after having gotten ill last week. After long stretches of stable and warm weather I forget, that I need to put on warmer clothes and shoes when it gets colder again. This keeps happening to me again and again. ...

REVIEW SIGMA 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

You’ve certainly noticed that I’m a big fan of Sigma’s Art series! My all-round lens, which I don’t want to miss, is the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art. But also the classical lens, a normal focal length for full-frame cameras, the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, has become a faithful companion that never lets me ...

Sigma Photo Pro: an analysis of high speed settings

Speed is a constantly recurring topic when it comes to Sigma Photo Pro. By their very nature the photo files of Sigma cameras are large and algorithms used for their processing complex. Therefore it is hardly a surprise that one needs a lot of memory and a fast processor if one doesn’t want to spend ...

A dream come true: Whale Watching

Hey guys, Today I don’t want to say a lot but mainly let the pictures I took speak for themselves. In Iceland, to be more exact in the town of Húsavík, which locals and visitors love to call Europe’s whale-watching capital, I fulfilled a great dream. I used the opportunity to watch whales in the ...

A paradise for photographers – ICELAND

Hey guys, Today I don’t want to write a lot but simply let my photos speak for themselves. I took them during the past two weeks in my new favorite country. No typical holiday destination, but in any case a true paradise for all lovers of nature and photo enthusiasts. Iceland proved to me that ...

Sharpness comparison part 2: Sigma 100-400mm vs 135mm F1.8 Art

Like with my prior Sigma 100-400mm C vs 135mm f/1.8 Art comparison, where I was comparing their respective sharpness at close-up range, I’ve decided to not only shoot at the same aperture but to shoot photos with the prime lens at those apertures which the zoom is lacking and compare the results to the zoom’s ...
