WHY I LOVE MY SIGMA 85MM

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 09 may 2018

It took me a while (understand years) and a few bursts of GAS (gear acquisition syndrome), lots of buying and selling cameras and lenses to realise I had what I wanted from the beginning.
I stepped into the world of full frame and professional cameras with the purchase of a Nikon D800 and a Sigma 85mm f1.4 (not the ART version).
It was love at first sight and I started yielding satisfying photographs from that moment on.
But I found myself in limiting situations and I got a 24mm and a macro 105mm and a 35mm and later a 70-200mm and a Nikon D800E and a D4s and a D7100 and a 16-35mm and a 50mm and maybe more I can’t even remember.

As life happened and my photography business reduced I had to get rid of some of my toys starting with the ones I wasn’t using much, I also involuntarily drowned the D800E so that was that.

To cut a long story short (which you can retrace on this blog for sure) I end up today with my old D800 and Sigma 85mm as main favorite system (although I still own a couple of extra lenses that actually make sense : 35mm f1.4 and a fisheye for underwater).

And this morning again, through a tuition I gave, I shot with this fabulous couple and I am definitely in awe with it.
I love everything about it, its balance, its weight, the way it feels, the way it focuses, and most of all the superb images it gets me every time !

So if I had one tip for any starting photographer out there : keep it simple ! Join a club, form a community and experiment on other’s fancy lenses and cameras but what works for you may be easier than you think.

Thanks to my friend Sofia for the nice portraits shot this morning.
