MARKET DAY MAN

By hobbo
I see this very distinctive character almost every Thursday at our local market, he always has time to pass the time of day, I took a portrait of him two or three years ago.

Last week I was trying a new SIGMA 1:2.8-60 Lens out on my GX7...... The lens had great reviews especially for portraits.

He readily agreed to give it a try and this is the best of two shots, I am more than delighted with the performance of the lens.

It's not the best for a Street Photography, but once I got used to what it sees on camera, I was able to get the shots I wanted.

Does anyone else on the forum use this lens or one of a similar spec?.......any tips or comments to pass on regarding it?

Hi,
I met by chance the other day a Canadian photographer/printer/teacher taking the streets with a 'stenope' camera. She is after a personal project on a famous architect. Did she bother of her camera having NO LENS? Obviously not as it was her choice to bring a cumbersome wooden box and a tripod all the way from Canada here. It's the picture that should matter not the glass. The end result of your shot is absolutely fine but for that to be achieved, far more things than just your lens were necessary. Your people skills, the control of available light, the appropriate framing were all influenced by you rather than the lens.

Excellent picture

Are those 20th Century side burns or 18th Century, either way they are great! You have captured his well lived in face superbly.
