SIGMA 50MM FOR SONY E-MOUNT

I started using Sony mirrorless cameras when we didn’t even have lenses from Carl Zeiss Batis. I’m talking around 4 years back when I decided to move from Nikon and its been quite a journey with Sony Cameras.
Anyhow, now we almost have all the lenses available for Sony E-Mount but today I’m not talking about Sony Lenses.
I’m talking about one of the most famous lenses from Sigma Art 50mm f1.4

Earlier I tested 35mm f1.4 Art from Sigma, this was my second lens I tested for sigma and I need to agree this lens has some ability. Why I say that is because the lens actually works really well without any focusing issues, and agrees to use all the ability available in Sony cameras. I don’t want to get technical with specs and all the other jazz cause you all must have already checked it out on all the other vlogs and blogs. I’m here to show what I could click with this lens and my experience.


Some random images I shot of the River while the sun light was falling onto the water, shot on the wide open to see what kind of bokeh we can create. I would give 8/10 cause I see a little chromatic aberration on the bokeh.


This image below I had little trouble to focus on the subject since I was trying to take a silhouette shot but I wouldn’t mind cause every other lens has that kind of issues.


This is one of the images I shot at a wedding recently where I was shooting through a transparent glass. I was surprised, It did a pretty good job on focusing.

1st image I had trouble to focus even though I had my single auto focus point on the Female Subject but it still kept focusing the Male Subject so I ended up shooting on Manual Focus. 2nd shot took no time and focused right away.


I met this cute girl at a wedding. I convinced her parents to let me shoot her. She had no experience of posing and getting a shoot done. It’s a task to capture such moment when focusing and getting the right expression is very important there is a long story behind these images but my lens needed to be ready to get the right shot on the right time sigma didn’t fail there which is extreme happiness for me.


We were shooting some products around the water side, I asked my fellow photographer friend to pose for me cause I wanted to see how it focuses while the person is wearing a glasses. You can take a look.


She was chilling at the location where I asked her to be in the moment but she got little conscious I still got one shot. If you’re being little candid about your images. It’s quite fast.

I also got some of my self images shot with this lens. Looks good to me.

I’m pretty happy with the lens what I don’t like about this lens is its too huge for 50mm but if you don’t care about the size and weight this lens should be there in your bag pack without any second thoughts. Its priced reasonable for f1.4.

INDIAN FUSION

It is always fun to mix up your Tradition with western spice. I had to the opportunity to have Shalini Vadnikatti in this shoot. She had the perfect face for what I was planning and such an amazing soul for coming out of her comfort zone, giving her best. 

This shoot turned out to be even more special cause a friend of mine owns this beautiful cafe called Nirvana Bistro in Hyderabad who was willing to give me their space for this shoot. They have this crazy concept of letting you play whatever music you want, you have a projector to play your own Netflix or Prime videos, Food part is special cause it's literally like home food and if you have a nice recipe please go ahead and give it to them they 'll have it on their menu. 

I happened to get my hands on Profoto A1 so decided to make a use of these beauties in my shoot. Please look at the output for yourself. 

I'm attaching few Light Setups for you all to get an idea how lights were placed. 

This shoot wouldnt have been possible with this amazing team I had back in Hyderabad!
