My camera took me to the wonderful places – I do not even know where I have been in the research for inspiration. My phone counted 30 000 steps in two days. A month ago I bought Canon EOS 80D and recently joined it with my profoundly chosen lens, Sigma 18-35 mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art. This chapter is mostly concentrated on the very first photographs I took with that combination.

I am not a technician so I will let others to thoroughly judge the technical side of it (I recommend  checking these three reviews: at Christopher Frost photographyShahazad Bagwan photography or Darren Miles photography channel), but the thing I will surely mention is that it made me exceedingly happy (yes, I was counting the days when I will finally buy it)! It took me hours to find the perfect lens for the APS-C sized sensor, and that search resulted in choosing the lens which cannot be anything else but perfect, perfectly sharp. Even I am learning on a daily basis from the selected photography resources, I will have to put all of my efforts into implementing the new in the practice – so this time, instead of adjusting the technical aspects to contribute to the elaboration of my ideas, I was actually adapting myself to the different situations to get the imagined. The days were very sunny, which is something I was grateful for.

It is so amazing to see in almost an insignificant moment of life
something so valuable to be memorized in the form of photography.

The lens of such capacity requires the specific approach to reach the best results – as a wide-angle lens it made me to look at the things from the different corner than I was used to, as I am more into putting the details in the first plan, rather than the whole story.

The best thing would be to let photographs to speak for themselves. The only post-processing I did was about adjusting the colors.

    1. Oh, dear Eoin, it is so nice to read that! I could say that my first thought on it was actually your photograph over here!
