Those extra winter pounds

I can’t say if it has anything to do with the cold, but I’ve been craving heavy, unhealthy food lately. Sport seems to be an abstract concept and recently comes down to walking to a shop or a restaurant where I get even more food. I’m doing fine with those extra winter pounds, growing in ...

Bad weather photo subject ideas: cats and food!

I‘d love to grab my tripod and SD1 and take some photos outside, but the weather conditions and light shortage make it impossible.  The only thing I can do I guess is taking my Sigma DP2 Merrill and   using something I come across on my way to work or while shopping as a subject.  There ...

Today, once again, I have been taking pictures with the ultra-wide-angle lens. This time I decided to put the so called “zoom in effect” (what a funny word, actually) suitability of the Sigma UWW to the test. The zoom in effect works like this: (clearly) exposure has to be sufficiently long, so that there is ...

Out and about with an ultra wide angle lens

Only recently a friend of mine, who is also interested in photography, told me that a regular use of a single focal length or a single lens can sharpen one’s perception. That is why I dedicated the past few days to explore SD1 and Sigma 10-20 f/3.5. As far as I remember, I have never ...
