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.

Shadows

I like using spot lights in the studio and being dramatic with my lighting. I also prefer using lenses on tripods in the studio. My go to lens in the studio is always the 70-200mm for the variety of different croppings.

Shapes

James Schmelzer

Canon APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/125 sec F8 100

I call this image shapes and I loved using my 70-200mm lens to capture the details of this photo. I normally place my camera on a tripod and then use the collar on the lens to rotate my compositions without having to tilt the tripod. Diagonals is what makes this photograph and its easy to do with the rotating collar! A must for studio photographers. 

Looking Towards The Future

Judy Host

Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/1000 sec F2.8 400

 As a natural light photographer, my favorite time of day to photograph is about an hour before sunset.  The light quality is so beautiful.  It’s as if I had a large soft box in the sky. This image of Bryan was created in the hills of Northern California, a location I have been photographing in for over 20 years.  It’s one of my favorite places especially in the Spring because the mountains are so green.  Bryan and I had been photographing for close to an hour when he stopped for a second and just stood in that amazing light and drifted off into his own world. Using Sigma’s 70-200mm F2.8 DC HSM | A  at F2.8, I was able to create the perfect portrait and the perfect usage of this lens.  My subject is beautifully sharp while the background has a painterly and diffused look to it.  Byran’s eyes, incredibly sharp are a gorgeous blue and were enhanced by the natural light. 

Whispering Wind

Another favorite lens and workhorse is ­­­­­­­Sigma’s 70-200mm F2.8 DG HSM | A  lens which is one of the best lenses for me to use when I want to get up close and personal. Fast and sharp Sigma’s 70-200mm F2.8 DG HSM | A  gives me the flexibility I need to create close-up shots and diffuse my backgrounds. I’m not always in a place that has great backdrops.  In this case, I was photographing up against an ugly beige acoustical wall.  I wanted a high key look to the image. The 70-200mm F2.8 DG HSM | A  with it’s compression ability will soften the background to the point of being unrecognizable at times.  Sharp at any focal length, you can create beautiful portraits this way.

This portrait of Stan was actually created during a workshop in Bozeman Montana.  The workshop was about how to control light using the settings in your camera.  So many of my students that day were checking their light meters and histograms in their camera while missing the magic of the moment.  I was doing my best to give them a range of settings to use so that they could pay more attention to creating a beautiful portrait.  I am not against using these devices to give you a proper reading of the light, but I would prefer once you have a reading, to concentrate more on your subject and composing a compelling image.  The lesson was to develop a sense of what you want your exposures to be rather than blindly following the average light readings your camera may be giving you.  Understanding how to control the light coming into your camera will give you the power to create what you want.  I like to photograph with an open aperture and on this lens that was f 2.8.  Also because of the focal length of my lens at 200mm, I needed to keep my shutter speed at 200 to make sure it was in focus.  I used my ISO to make up the difference in how much light was coming into the camera and to make sure I had a good exposure.

Darien

Judy Host

Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/1000 sec F2.8 160

This session was set up for the client at a beautiful park in Atlanta, GA.  The Wedding dress that Darien is wearing is her Mother’s which was the purpose of the shoot.  It turned out to be an extremely hot day with no cloud coverage to give us any shade.  Fortunately, when I spotted this location, the sun was in the perfect spot to light my subject and low and behold, we actually had ducks.  To stop the action, I set my shutter speed to 1/1000 and adjusted my aperture 2.8 to make up the difference for my exposure.  ISO at 160 gave me the perfect exposure.  I added a texture to the overall image in Photoshop 2014 CC to give the image a vintage look to it.

Running Free

Photographed in the middle of the day using Sigma’s APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM, I was able to capture this wonderful image of Abby as she skipped over the bridge to beach holding her hat to keep it from blowing away. If you look closely, her feet aren’t even touching the ground, a wonderful way to “seize the moment”. What I love about the 70-200mm 2.8 lens is the ability to zoom in close and zoom out to capture more of the scenery if I need too without ever moving as well to tell my story.

Innocence

Judy Host

Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM 1/160 sec F5.0 320

Capturing a moment in time where my subject, especially a young girl will stand quietly for me is an absolute joy.  This image was created after running around the backyard for about 30 minutes.  I had asked her to stand with her back to the setting sun so I could capture that beautiful light around her. Refection from the cement gave me the added light I needed for her face.  Using Sigma’s 70-200mm lens, my workhorse, was the perfect chose given the amount of movement taking place and gave me the ability to compose my image exactly the way I wanted it without having to reposition myself.  There are times when a telephoto lens just works better for me especially when photographing children on the run.  Once again, these lenses are so wonderfully sharp and fast, I can be focused in a split second.

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.

The beautiful colors of the peacock are well known when they spread their feathers trying to attach their mate. Most of the color is in the face and on the front of their bodies and feathers. But I was stuck by the symmetry and simple colors of this guy strutting his stuff. Beautiful proportion and balance in harmony with one another.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Karen

Judy Host

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

Judy Host

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

Judy Host

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

Judy Host

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.

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

Judy Host

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.
