Remember how 007 always had something up his sleeve? Like a watch with a tiny camera, or a pen that exploded?
Well, I am no James Bond. But I always have something in my bag that I never go on any caper without. It's my Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.
Yet, the Sigma 70-200mm is so versatile, it can be the only lens in my bag if I am packing light or know I will be out and about a great deal trying to capture a variety of images.
Case in point, I can use this lens around my back yard to grab a photo of just about anything.
It's not a macro lens, but it doesn't mean you can't get good close up images of your subject. Depending on the aperture setting, I can keep the surroundings nice and crisp to capture everything in the background and foreground, or I can open up the aperture to blur or achieve bokeh in the photograph.
This same lens can travel with me to my granddaughter's soccer game and capture soccer action as it happens on the field.
But, IT'S ALWAYS IN MY BAG!
Now for something shaken, not stirred. After all, it's Friday! Enjoy your weekend!
