Shot with Sigma: The Last Year’s Living Room Sessions

(Ed. note: We are revisiting many great articles from our archive that celebrate the at-home and DIY spirit of creativity during the Covid-19 outbreak. This article was originally published in 2015.)

The Last Year, an alternative rock band out of Baltimore, MD, recently launched the Living Room Sessions on their YouTube channel in advance of their new self-released album, coming soon!

Niki Barr, lead singer, chose the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | A lens to pair with her DSLRs for its incredibly sharp wide-open performance—great for the challenging low-light situations typical of indoor music venues.

“We’re a DIY band, and this lens just works perfectly for us, and paired with my full-frame 6D, it’s great for tight spaces. We’re going to be doing a lot of video work with this camera and lens combination this year as we create videos for our singles and live shows.”

Check out their website to see all the videos in the Living Room Sessions and much more! And Check out their Patreon Page, too!
