It is a lovely lens. With the next lockdown looming it might be difficult to get hold of again. I think it was sold out for most of the summer! Although the new Sigma 105 2.8 also looks very promising!
A big thanks to everyone who joined in with the first food photography challenge last month!
So for this month (October 2020) the challenge is macro or close-up photography. You don't need a macro lens to participate as a lot of lenses will let you shoot pretty close-up, so you can't use not owning a macro as an excuse not to participate!
This is not a competition so there will be no winners announced, it's purely for fun and self-development.
Please only post new photos that you have taken yourself for this challenge, not archived shots
Post as many times as you would like
Macro and Close-up Photography Tips:
If you are looking for tips and inspiration then this article should help to get you started:
You can find the forum guidelines here, although I don't actually specify which camera bodies as I thought having Alpha in the site name would be sufficient. I'll get something added to make this clear. Basically I'd prefer to keep the focus on Alpha bodies, which is why you won't find dedicated forums for Sony's compact cameras. That said, I don't mind too much if shots get posted from time to time with cameras like the RX10 which share a lot of technology with the Alpha cameras, and I know a lot of Alpha Shooters also own an RX100, but I won't shout about this.
