Additional photos I’ve taken with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art

On my last photo walk, during which I once more had my 18-35mm f/1.8 Art with me, one thing became clear to me. Namely that the high light gathering power at the wide angle end can be useful in situations other than low light. Before I bought the lens I was thinking that, not being such a huge fan of focal lengths shorter than 50mm (full frame equivalent), I wouldn’t be able to profit from it. Meanwhile it became clear to me that I like using the f/1.8 aperture at the WA end, especially in combination with the short minimum focusing distance of just 28cm. It makes a difference whether you are shooting with 18mm or with 35mm from a longer distance. Thanks to f/1.8 you can blur the background in both cases, but the image taken with 18mm is going to have a distinctly different look. Stretched out, deformed, less usual and with a less abrupt bokeh. This kind of look suits some motifs much better than the “flatter” rendering of the 35mm focal length. IMO the one in the first photo is one such motif.
