A small end-of-the-year review: my TOP 30 photos of 2014

I’m a mediocre photographer, who casually speaking shoots a lot of crappy photos. I delete most of them right after capturing them. For the majority of the shots, that make it through the deleting frenzy during a photo walk, my PC’s hard drive is only an intermediate station - recycle bin being the final destination. ...

Haste, A Photographer’s Biggest Enemy

Taking a good picture takes time, the composition has to be well considered, camera settings need to be made and thoroughly scrutinized. A good picture is just as little reproducible and shot from the hip as a beautiful picture is painted with only a few brush strokes. Haste makes waste. If you do it too ...

Review: Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art

The best thing about Sigma Art lenses, from a buyer’s and tester’s point of view, is that all are similarly well built and optically outstandingly good.

2nd photowalk with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art

One week ago I took the 18-35mm f/1.8 Art for the first time on a photowalk with me. As it often happens when you get a new lens, you shoot a lot of photos to satisfy your curiosity. You forget everything you knew about photography and you stop thinking about composition, exposure parameters and whether ...

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art: my prime lens killer has arrived!

The 18-35mm f/1.8 Art is without a doubt one of the most interesting APS-C lenses released in recent years. It received a staggering amount of praise in the reviews, even in those where it was pitted against prime lenses. It outclasses garden-variety standard zooms with f/2.8 aperture mercilessly and allows APS-C camera users to get ...
