Hey guys,

Today I decided not to look for unusual subjects but to take pictures of totally typical everyday things. You can normally find me kneeling or lying in front of some little blossoms or tiptoeing behind some trees, breathing silently and waiting tensely for the right moment to capture a bird. Today I was on eye-level in a little village near my home town. I scrutinized the apartment blocks, looked at the driveways more carefully and enjoyed the atmosphere of the coming spring.

Lens review – A classic put to the acid test


Some days ago SIGMA announced four new lenses on their website and on different company-owned social media pages. So before taking a closer look at these newcomers made of glass, I recently became interested in reviewing the classic that by now can’t be neglected anymore, the SIGMA Art 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens, in terms of autofocus and vignetting and with studio photography.

Marrakech


Hey guys,

Today’s photo walk also takes us to the red city or the Pearl of the South – better known as Marrakech. I don’t get tired of repeating how spellbound I was by this city. I don’t know if you know this feeling but some places simply are different. They have their charm and without realizing you get spellbound.

So far not many cities have delighted me as much as that one. Besides Istanbul and Hanoi, Marrakech definitely belongs to my favorite photo cities.

Photo Walk through the city


Despite the ongoing rainfall and a cloudy, permanently gray sky I decided not to wait much longer for a more varied lighting mood but to grab my camera and get going. After a long break I also took my reliable SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HS lens along, which is perfect for such excursions in particular.

Hey guys,

After my last photo walks and reviews led me through the streets of Marrakech, this week it was time again to take a tour through the local forests. Winter is about to fade away and the sun comes back for a few hours as the sunbeams warm our skin again. The last snow is about to melt and every now and then you can see little green leaves and grasses sprout.

Night photography with the SIGMA Art 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens


After an exhausting month of exams at university the desire for some fresh air was rarely as big as yesterday evening. So despite the freezing cold and the dark I decided to drive to the river at the outskirts of the city with my camera equipment. This time I took the SIGMA Art 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM and my Canon EOS 600D with me.

Marrakech with the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art lens


This year I already felt like getting on the plane in January to escape the daily routine for a couple of days. I wanted to go to a city where I wouldn’t have to rush from sight to sight but where I can simply enjoy the atmosphere. I wanted to stroll through the narrow lanes and the lively squares, enjoy some sun and have a unique view from nice rooftop terraces. Some good coffee and tea, fresh-squeezed juices, a different kind of cuisine, diligent handcrafts and amazing colors… A few days in Marrakech, the “red city”, the “pearl of the South” combine all these aspects for me!
