Off the Rails…

Off the Rails…

A few months ago I was approached about a very unique project from someone who I have worked with in the past but not really on a paid scale (when I review their products I am never paid).  Sigma called, well, they emailed, but that’s beside the point.  Sigma called and ask if I would…Read More


The NEW Sigma 35F1.2 for E Mount…

In the last review, I mentioned that I would be reviewing this lens next, and here we are.  This is a very exciting lens for many including myself despite the fact that it is for E and L mounts only.  For the last several years Sigma has been working to fill the gap in the…Read More


The NEW Sigma 45 F2.8 DN C…

It was a quiet Wednesday when I got a call saying a lens had arrived for me at Roberts Camera here in Indianapolis.  While I do lens reviews somewhat regularly this was still a surprise as I wasn’t expecting any lenses to review nor had I ordered one.  (Plus they normally get sent to me…Read More


At the Summit…

A few weeks ago I undertook the very exciting task of heading out to Denver Colorado for what the photographic community considers to be one of the top photography workshops around.  The Rich Clarkson photography at the Summit workshops.  This was a really cool thing for me because it’s something I had always wanted to…Read More


The Symposium…

Multiple years ago now I worked at an event at Roberts Camera here in Indy called the EDU Expo.  It’s been around for a while now, and each year I have either attended, presented, or otherwise helped out in some way.  It’s a great event, filled with great people, and I’m honored to know them. …Read More

Making Bubbles…

Recently in Indianapolis, the city befell a cold spell not normally seen in this part of the world.  Late in January in Indianapolis, the temperature reached -11 degrees Fahrenheit during the day.  I say during the day because everybody knows its colder at night, but during the day, while the sun was out, the temperature read…Read More


The NEW Sigma 70-200F2.8 Sport…

I’m sure that I have mentioned this previously, and if not then this will be the first I suppose, but the very first professional lens I ever bought was a Nikon 80-200F2.8.  For most professional photographers the 70-200 range (or 80-200 way back when) is a staple and a lens you can find in literally…Read More


2018 in Review…

(Nikon Z7, FTZ Adapter, Nikon 14-24F2.8N@14mm. 1600ISO, 1/500th@F4.5) Here we are once again at the end of another rotation around the giant fireball in the sky to signify one more year of our lives.  Each year a lot of folks start making resolutions on things they want to change about themselves for the upcoming year,…Read More


A Couple of Holiday Sigmas….. The NEW 56F1.4 DC and 40F1.4 Art!

Welcome back to the end of another year on this disk globe called Earth.  As we approach the holidays some photographers speed up, with all the talk of Santa and all kinds of Christmas events and such, photographing people with Holiday Cheer and or just photographing the aforementioned Claus himself.  I, however, tend to start slowing down a…Read More
