Douglas Dubler created this series of tulip images with the Sigma 180mm F2.8 Macro HSM lens paired with a Sony A7R Mark2.
“I use this lens for one reason, it’s the best, period. And it has a great working distance, which allows me to be outside of the flower beds. I’m shooting wide open at F2.8 or F4 for razor-thin depth of field for artistry. I’m using on-camera strobe at three stops under for catchlight, usually between 5 and 7:30 under open sky. ”
