I bought this Sigma 10-20mm lens in 2013 to use on my Sony A77 DSLR, and when I switched over to Fujifilm, I used it only rarely. But I have recently found it to be a great lens for my Twitch stream. The ultra-wide field-of-view allows me to show my desk, as well as Yuzu as she sleeps on her pillow next to me. I’m so happy I didn’t have any takers when it was up for sale a few years go. 😀
Photography-related posts. I talk about inspiration, settings, gear, other photographers, etc.
Yuzu and Socks
Yuzu loves to collect socks. So I started an Instagram account to document the results of her hunting. 😄
Lighting Kit in Action
My wife used our Neewer 660 lighting kit for the first time last night during a pizza lesson. It worked out nicely! The shoot-through umbrella is a little obtrusive, but the diffused light and soft shadows that it creates is worth it.
Neewer 660 LED Lighting Kit
We received a new Neewer 660 LED Lighting Kit today and it seems pretty good! Just a few days ago I sold my old studio flash and switched to these continuous lights which will be good for stills and video.
The kit we chose comes with two lights/stands, but doesn’t have any soft boxes. However, I have a shoot-through umbrella that I was able to use and it works great. The first photos I took were of an antique lamp that I am trying to sell on Facebook Marketplace. I think it looks nice!
For the second lamp, I might purchase the Neewer soft box just to see how it compares to the umbrella. I’ll post again when I get it, but it might not be for a while yet.
Black and White
A few times a year I think that I should try to shoot a whole month in black and white. But I’ve never been successful at it. Will this be the year? I doubt it. But stranger things have happened. 😆
But seriously, it would be fun and interesting to study and practice black and white photography, wouldn’t it?
