Let’s get on with the new Sigma 50/1.4, will we? These are the images of yesterday, Monday. Now, what do I do with this lens? Well, just like with most lenses, I go for shallow depth of field 🙂

On an APS-C sensor, 50 mm are a nice focal length for portraits, and in fact this is an excellent portrait lens. In this image of my friend Erich I focused on the near eye, and that’s pretty much all that is sharp in this image.

The pumpkins are a morning image, taken in exactly the same spot as “711 – Autumn’s Here“, in front of a flower shop in Lerchenfelder StraĂźe.

It’s Tuesday evening now, and although I have some images for today, you won’t see them today and maybe not even tomorrow. When I came home, I found that my computer had died, thus there is no Photoshop today. I write this from a Linux system on my second PC, but of course I have no Photoshop CS3 on Linux. I’ll take the Laptop home from work tomorrow, and if I manage to do so, I may have a new computer by tomorrow evening, but I already shudder from the thought of installing all my software. Oh dear!

The Song of the Day, matching the dream-like scene in my Image of the Day, is “Deep inside your Dreams” from Lisa Ekdahl’s 2002 album “Heaven Earth & Beyond“. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Great shot.

  2. So I’ve been following your blog for a bit – love it, sorry to hear of your troubles lately.

    I really enjoy the depth of field in this shot. I think the lights in the background make it very interesting.

    And thank you for doing this – it’s so inspiring as a fellow photographer.
