A wide-aperture APS-C zoom allows for all kinds of creative possibilities. Fresh tomatoes and other produce become works of art. Sosio’s Fruit and Produce, Pike’s Place Market, Seattle.

Cross fox in Katmai, Alaska with the Sigma 150-600mm Sports

© 2015 Robert O'Toole | Teeth and claws on display directed toward a photographing moving too quickly. I mistakenly had my aperture set to f/18 causing my ISO level to shoot up to 7200! Sigma 150-600 Sports lens at 410mm and Nikon D810, 1/1250s, f/18, ISO 1000, EV + .3, Manual mode with Auto-ISO, UniqBall UBH 45 head and Jobu Algonquin Carbon Tripod.

Imagine one of finest places in the world for photography, filled with a vast system of mountains, lakes, and hundreds of miles of wild and untamed rivers and streams. A home for brown bear, eagles, fox, and wolves. Thankfully Katmai is visited by only a small number of people each year. Maybe the fact that this place is not reachable by car has something to do with it, but about only twenty to thirty thousand people visit this area of over four million plus acres each year.

© 2015 Steve Chesler

If you only had 8 seconds to shoot the perfect shot, which lens would you choose? When I had the opportunity to shoot the Attica Rodeo in Attica, NY, I immediately reached for my Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 Sport lens. I knew the action would be fast, I didn’t know what the lighting would be and there would most certainly be dirt and dust flying. The lens could handle all of it, even if the lighting was less than optimal. Fortunately, it was a beautiful late summer day, so I didn’t have any lighting curve balls thrown at me. What I wasn’t counting on being thrown at me came from a bulls rear end.
