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 ...

Visiting a puppet theater

As you may have noticed in the past few weeks I’m more and more attracted to documentary photography. Following intriguing people and things and capturing big and little particularities interests me more and more. The ice-fisherman I could accompany one afternoon at temperatures far below zero degrees Celsius, the lovely ladies at the pastry store ...

The atmosphere of the golden hour

Anyone who has anything to do with photography cannot avoid the notion of the golden and the blue hour. The golden hour describes the period shortly after sunrise or shortly before sunset, in which the sunlight takes on an orange to reddish colour and is already very low. Long shadows appear and everything seems dreamy, ...

Summer Drinks with the SIGMA 50mm F1,4 DG HSM | Art and the SIGMA 24-70 mm F2, 8 EX DG HSM

Hey guys, We all enjoy the sun. And finally it’s back again! Temperatures around 30°C, the ice cream tastes even better and there’s nothing better than a nice and cool after-work drink.  And that’s exactly the pictures I’m going to show you today! The day was very hot and I was supposed to take pictures ...

VISITING A DOLL DOCTOR

Hey guys, today I’d like to take you a photo walk of a different kind! A couple of days ago I had the chance to get an idea of a doll doctor’s job. From the outside you can already guess that this isn’t an ordinary shop. Through the shopping window you’re already watched by many ...

Today SIGMA announced a new lens: It’s an ultra-wide-angle lens of the Art series! We’re very excited already. For the past years SIGMA has been working on two ultra-wide-angle lenses with the important focal length of 14mm at the same time.

Contrasts in the studio (with the SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens)

In principle, shooting outdoor is the most beautiful thing for me. I stroll through the wilds of nature, explore forests and meadows and keep looking for water drops on leaves and little bugs on blossoms. Also in town I enjoy walking outside and looking for details that are hidden to most other people. For my ...

UP THE MOUNTAINS WITH THE SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art

 By now, colorful autumn has left us and the city has immersed into some sad gray tones. The tall buildings, the sky and even the people in the city look gray to me in winter. The snow never remains and instead the streets are covered with wet slush. Besides my cold fingers and a red ...

Sometimes staying inside feels just better…

Autumn has finally arrived: the chilly wind, some rain every now and then, and days that become shorter and shorter. Of course, enjoying this season equipped with rubber boots, a rain-check and a cap can be nice, as I showed to you on my last two photo walks. Sometimes, however, sitting at the window sill ...

“In Vienna’s Prater the trees blossom again”

When you think of Vienna’s Prater as a non-local, first of all the Luna Park with the extraordinary carousels will come to your mind. You may almost forget that the entire huge area around, with its forests and the nature reserve, is also part of it. Since I’m particularly impressed by the Prater’s atmosphere in ...
