Fall Foliage with Sigma’s 15mm F2.8 Diagonal Fisheye Lens

This image was made in the early afternoon when the sun was still high in the sky. By standing under the leaves, I was able to use the sun to backlight them. I shot this image at f/2.8 to blur out the background, drawing attention to the branch in the foreground.Sigma 15mm f2.8 Fisheye, 1/2500 sec at f/2.8, ISO 250.

Fall is my favorite time of year to take photographs, and I always push myself to get out and make the most of the brief window of brilliant color. I have spent the last week chasing fall foliage in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. This year, after taking the obvious shots of deep oranges and reds, I used my Sigma 15mm Fisheye lens to capture the forest from a different perspective.

10-20mm f3.5 DC HSM: A must have lens for the outdoor sports shooter

©2013 Liam Doran | Sharp, light, fast and tough…the 10-20f3.5 makes it in the pack for multiday expeditions. Focal length: 10mm | Shutter speed: 1/800 sec | Aperture: F6.3 | ISO: 200

One of the benefits for outdoor sports shooters on APS-C sensors is the gain in reach with telephotos lenses. The negative of course is that now your wide angle 16mm is now not so wide at 25.6mm. Thankfully Sigma has a great wide-angle lens perfect for crop sensor shooters…the 10-20mm f3.5! I picked up this lens about a year ago and have shot outdoor sports and adventure travel with it extensively.
