Sigma Pro, Dave FitzSimmons, explores the powerful capabilities of the new Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens. If you are looking for a super-fast, ultra-wide prime for nature, architectural, and event photography, then the Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens is for you. Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Built with the same professional durability, usability, and image quality as its predecessors in the Sigma F1.4 Art lens lineup—the 35mm F1.4 Art and 50mm F1.4 Art—as well as that of its newer stablemates, the 24mm F1.4 Art and 85mm F1.4 Art, the 20mm F1.4 is an amazing lens.
I had the chance to explore the desert with the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art Series lens. About 30 miles outside of Las Vegas, Nevada lies a town that is not on any maps. Nelson, Nevada is a former gold mining town in Eldorado Canyon. Filled with old cars, trucks, gas pumps, and barns, this was the perfect place to give the new 35mm lens a workout.
Photography in winter can be a challenge. And when I say “winter”, I’m not talking of winter in the sense of majestic snowcapped peaks framed by freshly powdered pines with perfect golden light and firetone brushstroke clouds, I’m talking more of the winter of dirty refrozen slushpiles downtown three frigid days after a mid-January sleetstorm around 11:17 on a grey Tuesday morning when it seems there’s nothing magical left in the world worth getting out of warm car with a camera for.
Winter has its challenges, for sure, especially in the deciduous zones, where skeleton trees thrust bony fingers at the sky, and vistas and sweeping wild scenes are brushed widely with swaths of stingy browns and grays, instead of the festive pastels of spring, the lush greens of summer and the fall fireworks palette. But winter has it own charms and own rewards, and for photographers looking to challenge themselves and experiment, it can be a great time to get out and explore with a long lens, like the new 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG HSM OS | Sports lens.
