What is a Zoom Lens? And why and when to choose a Zoom Lens?

Sigma offers a great variety of zoom lenses. (Lenses are not shown to scale in this display.)

A zoom lens is a type of camera lens that is offers the photographer a useful range of different focal lengths in a single lens. This is in comparison to a prime lens, which only offers a single focal length. A zoom lens allows for quick and easy re-framing of a scene while staying in the same physical position. Sigma offers a line of over 20 zoom lenses for DSLR photographers, ranging from wide angle zoom lenses, supertelephoto zoom lenses, and high-zoom ratio all-in-one lenses for both full-frame (DG) and APS-C (DC) digital cameras.

Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM: First Impressions with Walter Arnold

For this shot I borrowed some brushes from local Water Color artist Sterling Edwards, who also works in acrylics. He lent me some of his brushes as well as a painter's pallet to photograph for this shoot. I laid a few of the brushes on the pallet next to a colorful dollop  of ink. After spending a good deal of time lighting the brushes with traditional lighting techniques, I broke out my trusty mag lite flashlight and used it to provide a very focused light from the side which made for a dramatic and textured image.
