Sigma’s Fan Photo of the Week for April 23-30 was made by photographer John Miner with his Nikon D3100 and Sigma 18-250mm multi-zoom lens. He tells us:
This Image was taken in October of 2011 on Folly Beach SC. I was on a dock that extends about 1000 feet into the Folly river trying to capture pictures of the Terns in flight when I looked toward the lighthouse and saw this view. The repetition of the long docks and the line of Terns caught my eye. Tech specs: Nikon D3100, Sigma 18-250mm, 250mm, 1/500s, f/11, ISO 200.
I have recently gotten back into serious (no more point and shoot) photography after a 32 year +/- hiatus. Photography is still only a hobby for me. I have found that since I’ve picked it back up I tend to look at things differently.
I have been involved with creative imagery pretty much my entire life. I was a watercolor artist in my teenage years, graduated college with a BFA, and have worked in the woodworking industry as a designer ever since.
I purchased my first DSLR (Nikon D3100) in January of 2011 and quickly grew bored with the 18-55mm kit lens that came with it. The search was on for an all-purpose lens with more reach. After much research I selected the Sigma
18-250mm and was instantly pleased with my decision
