There's nothing particularly impressive about this photo, but I'm still getting reacquainted with the gear. I've been feeling particularly burned out at work the past few months so I decided to step back and intentionally reclaim time each day for me. So I take my lunch time each day and participate in activities that aren't intellectually stimulating (we've got an Xbox One at the office) and that helps me recharge. I've also reinvested in some DSLR gear and am going to make photography a primary hobby once again - I picked up a used Nikon d300s and a 50mm f/1.8G for a good price and will see which focal lengths I find myself wanting from there.

 

Here's a couple of my chickens. Horrible mid-day light, lazy composition, overall kinda boring. But think of it as a port-hole into T.Smith's life, and that has some merit.

Her students really liked her a lot. At least the girls, not so sure about the guys. I think culturally, she was more confident than they liked.

Daughter, Anabelle, just a few weeks away from the age of two. Quiet time in my office with me the other night after work.

These were taken about 11 years ago... Canon 20D with a Sigma 120-300mm zoom (Gorilla - FTW Zoo) and Canon 100mm Macro (Ladybug & Flowers - Dallas Arboretum). These are low res crops taken from my Facebook page.

I have a couple of Sigmas myself and have been really happy with them. I always compare the price on similar Sigmas with the Canon L glass I prefer. Sigma makes a monster fast outdoor lens. Its 200-500mm F2.8 at a whopping $25K.

That was the old 120-300mm f2.8... It was very sharp from f4 on up (mine was). And even then it was a LOT cheaper than any comparable Canon L fixed length 200mm or 300mm f2.8. Lots of people thought poorly of them, but it was an excellent lense. And when you consider the 1.6x focal length multiplier of the APS-C sized sensor in the 20D, it was effectively 480mm on the long end.

The new Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 is even better, and much more expensive at $3K or so. But still about $3K less than a current Canon 300mm f2.8 fixed length telephoto.

I managed to put together a decent set...

Canon 17-40mm f4/L

Canon 85mm F1.8

Canon 100mm macro

Sigma 120-300mm f2.8

Wish I still had it all...

Reminds me of Portree on Isle of Skye in Scotland.
