The Weekly Photo – October 15
On this last fall colours photo tour it was interesting to look at the EXIF data from my photographs. Forty percent of all my photos were taken with my trusty Canon EF 24mm TSE lens (no surprise!). But the lens I used just as much as my tilt shift (at 40%) was the Sigma 120-400mm telephoto zoom! More and more I am using the Sigma lens to give me ‘extractive’ landscape photos like the image above. I just love the flexibility and reach of the lens. When the light is changing fast, like it was here with moving cloud shadows, this long tele-zoom lets me fine tune compositions on the fly. And it works equally well as a wildlife lens. If you missed my review of the Sigma 120-400mm lens check it out here. The photo above was taken with the Rebel T2i (my vote for best value in a digital camera ever!) and the 120-400lens.
