Overview

The Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX DG HSM OS is a large aperture telephoto zoom lens which features Sigma technology including a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and an Optical Stabilizer (OS). Fast, sharp and highly versatile, the 70-200mm 2.8 is a staple focal length for many types of photography including wedding photography, portrait photography, sports photography, and wildlife photography to name a few. Two FLD glass elements (with performance equal to Flourite) and 3 SLD elements (Special Low Dispersion) ensure outstanding image quality through the entire 70mm to 200mm range. An OS system compensates for camera shake when shooting handheld and a rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates beautiful bokeh. Designed for full frame cameras, the 70-200mm 2.8 will work on APS-C sensors, translating to roughly 112-320mm.

They are not in hurry to reach home in evening as soon as possible to meet family, as this happiness is not in their destiny. They have only one question for god-TILL WHEN...and everyday passes like the same.

I only had a fleeting moment before it disappear back into the forest again. Luckily the Sigma 70-200 was able to lock onto the target, allowing me to capture a moment that was priceless.

Brian Coffey's Super Moon 2012

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Sigma’s Fan Photo of the Week (May 14-18) was made by photographer Brian Coffey with his 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS lens and Nikon D2x. Here is what he tell us:This image was captured in May 2012 in Rome, Georgia. It was shot in the West Rome area where I live.I walk a certain route every day. On That particular day we were expecting a “super moon”. I knew that the perfect shot would be at the top of a particular hill along my route. I checked out the stop and sure enough there comes the moon about to rise just above the trees. With the addition of all the clouds in the sky the light from the moon gave the whole sky a nice glow. I thought I have just got to capture this.You don’t get a super moon everyday so I was hoping to make the most of it that night. Knowing I had only a few minutes to capture the shot I ran home and grabbed up my camera and tripod and headed back up the hill to the spot. I set the tripod up, mounted the lens to my camera, placed the camera on the tripod, plugged in my wireless shutter remote and looked up and there it was. At this point it was just rising above the trees illuminating the clouds and giving off a wonderful glow. I knew I wanted to capture as much of the tonal range as I could but with such a small window to capture my shot what do Ido. Using the wonderful feature on my Nikon D2X of multiple exposure bracketing I was able to capture all the exposures I needed for that perfect shot. The lens I used that night was the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS lens. I had a feeling I had captured it but didn’t know for certain till I went home and blended them together. As I looked at it on my computer screen I thought WOW! This shot turned out great. I thought this would be a great shot to add to my portfolio.Can’t wait till the next “super moon” opportunity.As a professional photographer I’m always out looking for that wonderful next image. Always looking for that next creative, unique and one-of-a-kind photo. I have always had a love and passion for photography. No matter how many photos I capture I’m always pushing myself to create something different. Always pushing to improve, learn and expand my work in photography.The best advice I can give is to always strive to improve, learn and to be creative. No matter what kindof camera you have whether it is a point-and-shoot, a basic or high-end DSLR. No matter if you have basic kit lenses to the expensive pro lenses just always keep shooting and have fun! Even though I have multiple DSLRs including my Nikon D2X and my large range of other equipment my favorite device to shoot with at times is my iPhone4. It makes and pushes me to focus only on what is in front of me, not on all the detailed controls. It is just you and the camera, it gives me a great feeling to capture the shot in camera and not always want to run to Photoshop to enhance.Hope everyone enjoyed looking at the photo and reading the article.

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

This week’s Fan Photo of the Week was taken by photographer Erik Madsen made with the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS lens, handheld.  He tells us:I shot this photo from the drivers seat of my car. I have been doing “a photo a day” since January 1st this year. I needed a photo for June 5th so I jumped in the car and came back with this shot.I have been doing event photography 2009. I have worked with many artists and recently started working with Live Nation for events.My facebook page is brand new so any promotion to get “likes” is much appreciated http://www.facebook.com/PresspasspicsMy website is www.presspasspics.com

NYC Skyline

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

This week’s Fan Photo of the Week is by Chad Weisser, of Long Island City, NY.He tells us that his image, Sunset of Manhattan Dec 6th, 2012, was shot from my apartment 24th fl on East River in Long Island City, Queens.  Shot at 105mm ISO 400 f 9.5,  9 shot wide pano, bracketed 3 shots each.  Post production edit on LR 4.2 and CS6.  My HDR is done via LR plug-in Merge to HDR Pro in Photoshop for a 32 bit file, then final edits in LR for saturation, clarity, etc.   Shot with Nikon D7000, Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II.About Chad: I’m originally from Siesta Key, Florida. Then after high school I moved to Austin, TX, Gloucester MA, San Fran, LA, San Diego, Miami Beach, and now NYC. I have a passion for travel, and along with that passion to travel has grown into a passion to photograph those places I go. Living in some of the best cities has given me the opportunity to see some amazing landscapes and cityscapes which has helped me grow in shooting landscape, cityscapes and huge panoramics.I started off with a Nikon D80 about 5 yrs ago, and this year I upgraded to a Nikon D7000, and I hope to step up to a Nikon D800E in a year or two. Along with my Sigma 70-200mm F2.8, my next favorite lens is my Sigma 10-20mm f4/-5.6 which is my workhorse for landscapes and cityscapes.  I moved to NY about 2 years ago and have had tons of things to shoot, and have grown in my field. I was lucky for 2012 to have been in 3 month long gallery shows, 1 bank that had two of my pieces up for 1 month, and recently NBC in NY featured a sunset of mine!I believe the most important quality of a photograph, as in all of art, is to evoke an emotional response. While everything in nature does this for me, selecting just the right places and moments to make a photograph that conveys those emotions is far more difficult. My camera is one of the tools I use to achieve my final results, the image you see here.Check out more of Chad’s work here and here. And fan his Facebook page here.

Red River Aspen Stand

Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/10 sec f 16 100

Autumn in Colorado...nothing is more spectacular than mountainsides covered with the yellow leaves of aspens. Set off against the black-speckled white bark of the aspen tree trunks, the yellows can be almost overpowering. In such situations, limiting what you depict in your photographs can be beneficial. I did just that for this stand of aspens between Ouray and Silverton: framing a small portions of the trees with my Sigma SD1 allowed me to capture the brilliant colors and the intricate patterns of leaves, depicting part for the whole. Couple the SD1es high resolution with the super-sharp Sigma 70-200 F2.8 OS HSM lens, and youeve got a winning combination: a 35mm DSLR-sized system with the reproduction size and fidelity of a medium format camera.

Cynthia Noir

Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/125 sec f 10 100

In fashion and beauty photography, you want perfect skin while also maintaining skin detail. Cynthia was selected as a model for her great skin, and I took my time to retouch any imperfections pixel-by-pixel. As a large print, this skin and image quality are impeccable. You can see each pore and hair, while keeping detail in the shadows and the highlights. The resolution and tonal qualities of the SD1 make it a striking large print.

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/8 sec f/5.6 400

I much prefer shooting with electronic flash. This photograph of actors, Tiffany Dupont and Emily Del Guidica in their home in Los Angeles is all natural. The light from an east facing window late in the day fell softly on them. A thirty by forty inch piece of foam core from an art store provides the fill. The key to the shoot was the prototype optically stabalized Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS lens allowing me to work at f/5.6 for some depth of field with an 1/8th of a second shutter speed at 70mm.

After Emily left, Tiffany and I moved out to the west facing balcony. Again natural light was the order of the day. This photograph became the ad announcing Sigmaes 70-200mm f/2.8 OS (for optically stabalized) telephoto zoom lens in Rangefinder Magazine.

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/60 sec f/5.6 400

After Emily left, Tiffany and I moved out to the west facing balcony. Again natural light was the order of the day. This photograph became the ad announcing Sigmaes 70-200mm f/2.8 OS (for optically stabalized) telephoto zoom lens in Rangefinder Magazine. The focal length was 135mm. A 1/60th of a second at f/5.6 was all I needed to make this tack sharp portrait.

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/100 sec f/14 100

Award winning colorist and hair stylist to Atlantaes elite, John Teitter of Bang! Salon created this look for model Heather Donaldson featuring the salones trademark violet in the background. Heatheres make up is by Tomas Espinoza. I lit this photograph with a beauty dish on her face and a two by three foot soft box from behind. A single head illuminates the background. My Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 at 110mm captured the exquisite detail of Heatheres red hair. Ites fast, sharp and responsive making this zoom lens a prime tool for fashion portraits like this one.

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/800 sec f/2.8 100

When I take senior portraits, I try to use some unusual angles and unique approach to the images. This photo was from a senior portrait session with Jessie. By shooting a long lens through the grass, I was able to compress the foreground, subject and background. It creates a very pleasing effect. I used a diffuser above the models head to make the mid-day sunlight soft and flattering.

This model hired me for her very first professional photo shoot. While planning the shoot, her mother told me about a beautiful field of sunflowers near their home. I knew I had to photograph that scene, and was so thankful I did. Here I used a slightly l

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/1600 sec f/2.7 100

This model hired me for her very first professional photo shoot. While planning the shoot, her mother told me about a beautiful field of sunflowers near their home. I knew I had to photograph that scene, and was so thankful I did. Here I used a slightly longer lens to help compress the model against the sunflower background. I took this image late in the day (just minutes before sunset) to make use of the natural direct sunlight on her face. By using natural sunlight I was able to balance the exposure on her face with the light on the scene. I added this color effect in Photoshop to give a more romantic feel to the image.

Karen

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/125 sec f7.1 640

I recently had an opportunity to photograph a wedding for a very good friend of mine.  This image of Karen was taken right before the wedding started and using only window light for this portrait, I was able to capture a very quite moment.  I used Photoshop to enhance the overall look of the image and added some graphics to the background. I also used the mixer brush tool in Photoshop to give Karen’s dress a painterly look.

Ariel

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/160 sec f2.8 50

This image of Ariel was created in the late afternoon in a field of weeds and flowers.  I used her hat as a scrim to keep the sunlight off her face while still being able to backlight her.  With my aperture wide open, I was able to capture that beautiful bokeh behind her while still having the flowers and brush in front of her in focus. I love to use a shallow depth of field when photographing people.

Miles 1

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/500 sec f5.0 320

Every so often I get a chance to create a model portfolio.  Miles, my model, wanted something a little bit different, so we decided to create storylines and he played whatever part he wanted.  The fact that we were in Bermuda, with gorgeous backdrops helped tremendously.  In this image, photographed in the middle of the day, we were able to find a nice shady spot with some fabulous reflective light.  I used NIK software to convert the image to B&W to add a little edge to it.

Miles 2

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/250 sec f8.0 320

Every once in a while, I like to do something different and when I have a willing participant, I could go crazy.  With 70-200mm in hand, I photographed Miles through the weeds that were taller than he was.  The wind was blowing hard making it difficult to focus, but it stopped just for a second and I was able to get the image I wanted.  I used NIK Software to convert the image to B&W and added the light vignette.

Missy

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/320 sec f4.0 100

This image of Missy is actually one of a series of seven shots I took of her that afternoon.  She was dancing and moving with the wind.  I love this kind of session because you never know what you’re going to capture.  I’ve been experimenting with movement in my images and love the expressions and body positions you get from them. I set my shutter to 1 /320 to stop the action and keep the image sharp.  Given the natural light and time of day, my ISO was low and depth of field wide open.  I used two different textures I had created earlier and blended them into the image of Missy in Photoshop to create that other worldly look.

Gabe

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/160 sec f4.5 320

Photographing in natural light is really my favorite thing to do, so for this session with Gabe we went to a wonderful park in Atlanta and played many different games.  This is always my ploy with little boys who are constantly in motion.  I will even have them running around so that they get tired and I have a moment in time when they need to catch their breath as in this image.  It doesn’t last very long so I take full advantage of it.

Tamara

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/200 sec f4 640

This session with Tamar was fun for both of us.  She is at the age where anything you want her to do, she will…. within reason.  Grapping her hat and looking through the window to see if anyone was at home was an easy exercise with a terrific reward at its completion.  CANDY!!!!  It’s always a great motivator.

Twins

APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/400 sec f4 160

Twins could be twice the trouble, or twice the fun.  With these two, it was pure joy.  I had brought along a prop as I sometimes do just in case I might need one.  In this location and photographing in the middle of the day, I used my umbrella not only to create some shade where I needed it, but also to defuse an uninteresting background. I also asked the girls to look in different directions to heighten their individuality.
