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 ...

Through the wind and the rain

While other people enjoy spending their summer vacation in deckchairs on warm and sunny beaches with a cool refreshing drink and a book in their hands, this year I decided to do the opposite. This year my plans took me to Iceland, a destination that’s been on my mind for a very long time. Instead ...

The association is mainly known for its award that is given every year. The editors-in-chief of all EISA membership magazines get together to decide about ...

An afternoon in the park

During the night the concrete fails to give off all the heat of the previous day, before it gets blasted by the sun on the next one. While walking there is a smell of freshly ironed clothes coming from bellow. It is one’s own clothes being ironed “on the go”. And with steam no less, ...

Taking a break to breathe Italian air

For the last two days I visited Milan where I enjoyed once again “la dolce vita” in an Italian way of life. Strolling through the city, enjoying the sightseeing and then turning into the little hidden side-lanes off the beaten path. There’s a lot more to discover in Milan than just luxury labels and a ...
