I have been photographing nighttime landscapes for about 20 years now capturing images of star trails like the one pictured […]
On a recent trip to Alaska I brought along a lens on loan from Sigma, the 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS MACRO HSM lens. Apparently this lens a very popular lens in the super zoom multi-purpose category but the question is, how would do on a wildlife shoot? When I was packing for my trip I remember thinking that I didn’t know how the lens would perform but at least the lens is so tiny it wouldn’t take up a lot of room in my bag.
Honestly it was my first time using this lens, or any type of super zoom lens, so I didn’t have a clue of what to expect but as the first series of images popped on the screen I was pleasantly surprised but when I zoomed in to see the sharpness at 100% the feeling changed to one of mild shock!

Over the last weekend a huge swell focused giant waves on California triggering a high surf advisory and I had my Sigma 50-500mm to document some of the action. By the end of the weekend the awe inspiring power of this swell took its toll with lots of snapped surfboard leashes, broken surfboards and injured surfers (one had to be taken away by ambulance), my friend Jim broke his foot on Sunday dropping into a huge wave!
At my local beach in south Los Angeles the waves break close to shore so my Sigma 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM works very very well to document the action in the water here. Prime lenses are much harder to shoot with at beach breaks especially when the surf is large.

Just four short weeks ago Fedex showed up at my door with a shiny new Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art lens. […]
I have always wanted a fisheye lens and have always talked myself out of the purchase, confident that it would gather dust when the novelty wore off. Recently, after becoming interested in wide-angle macro photography, I bit the bullet and got the Sigma 15mm F2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye. It’s now been two months and I honestly can’t put the lens down. A few weeks ago, my dad commented that my worldview is becoming warped and I hope he was just referring to the pleasing distortion in all my recent images.
