Thank you! It is an interesting lens, it is great at F/4 up to around 135-150mm, but then at 210 you have to stop it at F/5.6 and then it is great again

Season of Summer Light
Week 32, Wednesday - Moments
"One question that has continuously accompanied me during this season is about getting a good shot of Aura regarding facial expression. It's (at least) a two staged problem. First of all, how do I get the unstrained smile. This is a question where I have very little figured out. When I did the first picture of this set, I learned by accident to play 'a certain game' with Aura. I set her where she has to be, focus on her face and hide behind the camera. Then I ask does she see my nose, tongue, eyes or something similar. Then she looks at me, I raise my eyes behind the camera and once she reacts to this by saying 'I see!', I fire multiple shots (continuous shooting mode) and just hope I got the expression captured. It's a simple game and so far it has gotten me here. But the thing is that I've done it so many times by now that it loses the edge and there are some particular signs in that I might need to invent new strategy in future - Aura gets bored to same game.

The second problem deals with other end of this process. [...]"

Season of Summer Light
Week 32, Saturday - End of Season
"This is the last picture of 'Season of Summer Light'. While the summer in Finland isn't quite done yet and it changes slowly to autumn, this season ends here and next week I will move on to next theme. I can say that it has surely been great summer, both weather and photography wise. Especially I have enjoyed a lot the long summer days when we were doing small day trips around local areas together with food supplies and towels. At the same time I feel a bit sad because this particular summer, when Aura was two years old and learned things like swimming, climbing trees and picking flowers, is ending. Having a kid of my own I have luxury to live part of those childhood summers again, but as an adult I'm, at the same time, painfully conscious how the time and life passes by. [...]"

Work up to these blossoms this morning on the Organ Pipe in my front yard. They seem night blooming then close up later in the mornings daylight. The Fishook Barrel blossoms are in the near by desert.

A few with the Sigma 60 on the A6000. Amazing quality for a $200 lens.

Jeffry, I too have been blow away with how great the Sigma lenses perform. They have a certain character and quality that reminds me of manual focus Nikon for some reason. Great work.

This one was taken yesterday at our station. The flag needed to dry out from all the showers lately. Taken with the Sigma 30mm, 2.8.

Why would you focus on the crocs teeth and not his eye ?

Steve


Two answers

1. I originally wanted the eyes but the AF decided for me. One of the drawbacks of AF.

2. i'm glad it took it decided on the teeth even though I wanted eyes. with the teeth in focus I think it looks more menacing

Oh, I actually pet him

JT:

I think the focal point on the croc works very well and looks better than focusing on the eyes.

In that particular case, I would have focused on the teeth as well.
(I'd probably use a 200mm+ lens too...)

I was being facetious . The photo was very well done, as taken.
With the croc factor, the 50mm lens gave him the equivilent of a 75mm, but I still agree with you on the 200mm+.

I will say that the 6000 is hard to beat for the price. I particularly love shooting my ZA glass on it with the adapter. Keeps the camera small with something to hold as well.



















This particular one was with the Nikon 28mm 2.8 AIS

Season of Touit - Picture 1
Week 33, Wednesday - Introducing the Season of Touit
"Today I'm starting my fourth season at Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography. Like earlier seasons this one also carries a special theme which will define my photography for the next ten weeks. While the earlier seasons have dealt with blackness, personal memories and summer photography, 'Season of Touit' will concentrate on bringing new point of views into to my photography by moving away from the standard focal lengths that I've used thorough the year. Reasoning behind this plan is simple. It is my experience that creativity arises from limits and appropriate amount of obstacles. Crossing the limits requires one to find new ways and once it is done it breeds new ways of working which will eventually develop one's photographic eye. By restraining myself from my standard focal lengths I'm essentially setting creative limits for my work for next 10 weeks.

In practice this means I will restrain the use of my usual lenses (SEL50F18 , SEL1855) which cover focal lengths from 18mm to 55mm (equivalent to 27mm to 82,5mm on full frame). Instead I'm going ultra wide and close-up photography which are, regarding the perception of the depth, kind of extreme ends. Wide angle exaggerates the depth and makes things look further away while close-up photography brings things so close that we can only see details of the subject. These extreme ends will define my photography for next ten weeks. I'm also very happy to tell you that ZEISS has decided to support me on this task with two of their lenses: Touit 2.8/12 and Touit 2.8/50M. Needless to say, I'm honored to be supported by them, thank you Tobias! In coming posts I will introduce both of these lenses and tell you more about them in detail.

Founded by Carl Zeiss the ZEISS has been a leading company of camera optics for over 150 years. Photography professionals associate the name ZEISS with exceptional optical quality and their distinct optical concepts, like Planar and Distagon, have gain a great reputation among many photographers. My second task during this season is to find out what does this enthusiasm regarding the ZEISS means and tell you about my findings. [...]"

draigon, looks great at ISO 10,000! This camera is amazing to me. Thinking of the size and how easy it is to work with, and it provides great image quality. This was taken yesterday, also with the Sigma 30mm, 2.8. I am really liking this lens, love the focal length and the way it renders images.
