hey guys! (it’s matt). with kate up here posting like crazy i figure it’s about time for me to make my 2nd appearance on the altmix blog. sadly we don’t have any new images to post but i do want to address something i came across in the past week or so- a camera lens.
now this isn’t just any camera lens for a digital slr, but the most ridiculous lens that there has ever been. (the image below is thanks to engadget)
i mean, doesn’t that camera look like a flee that managed to hang onto the back of that green beast?! sigma (is there any question as to who created this thing?) has recently unveiled their 500 mm f 2.8 lens for a staggering 25k- yeah, $25,000! evidently sigma is the first ever to offer a 500 mm lens with a super wide 2.8 aperture. even still, who in their right mind would buy such a thing. not i. and for the majority of you who have no idea what i’m talking about, this lens can take really good pictures from reeeeally far away- thats all you need to know. but if you want more, here’s the link.
on another note be sure to check the website in the next couple days if you’re interested in seeing some more of the shots from this past weekend with sally and andrew. we’ve got some great ones and we promise to have the new album up in the gallery by friday!
we’re also really excited about this coming weekend as we’ll be shooting an engagement session for another awesome couple, bonnie and david. and this is why they’re awesome: they’re registered at rei- because for their honeymoon they’re going to through-hike the appalachian trail!!! yeah, that is amazing… if you want to learn more about these guys here is a link to their great wedding website, davidandbonnie2008!
hope everyone is having a great week and we can’t wait to talk with you soon!
