Some room darkening shades and direct sunlight through the window, smack a few of my kids chalkboard erasers together and some messing with the raw file and post processing. My daughter loves looking out this window when the sunlight is beaming through...so I made a point to try and capture it recently.

Thank you. Appreciate it. I noticed you have the 50 art and 35 art. I own the 50..actually took this pic with it. I'm a prime guy and I've been debating on the 35 art but I'm worried it's to close to my 50. I have Sigma 50 art, Sigma 85 1.4, Canon 135L and Sigma 105 Macro. Plus a small A6000 kit for when I'm running around with the kids. Do you find the 50 & 35 too close since you have both. Wondering if I should look into the 24 art instead or just get a 17-40L. I mainly shot my kids but I sometimes would like to do more storytelling pics rather than portraits at times. I just worry that 24 and people might cause some crazy distortion on faces and such. Any advice?

Ahhh, you've pulled me on the one thing I can't make my mind up on! I love the 50mm, but in the UK, it's just a bit too long for street work on our congested little roads, and I always find it's just a tad too long for family shots out and about, so I probably find I use the 35mm more, but keep getting drawn to the 50!! But, they are so close, I'm now deciding on whether to chop the 35 in for the 24, but, I have the 24-70 2.8IIL already, so, that's already brilliant at 24! I'm torn, I really am....

What I'm, working towards is the 16-35, the 34-70, and the 100-400, as my 'photojournalism' set, and for my high quality set the 400 prime, the 200 prime, the 135 prime ( portrait ) , the 100 prime ( macro ), the 50 prime, but, what prime for wide angle...I don't know!!!..I may go Zeiss yet!!!

*The 17-40 was the only lens I've ever had that I was happy to trade in, the distortion for street/family stuff was unacceptable, to my eyes it looked like a circus mirror, and it lost focus too easily in the corners, so, I wouldn't go down that route, spend a bit more and get the 16-35 instead, well worth the extra.

Very well done. That will be a good one to look back on once she's grown.

Great image!! I have the Sigma 35 and love it. The next longest prime I have is an 85, and I've never really felt a need for a 50. Everyone shoots differently though. What about the Sigma 24-35 2.0? Apparently it's a great lens.

Thanks. I have seen that Sigma 24-35 2.0 and it looks interesting. I also looked at the Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 VC and that really intrigues me since I don't have a wide angle lens and I know I lose a stop of light but the VC might help make up for that. I might try to kill two birds with one stone and get a landscape lens that can be used for environmental portraits rather than just a 35 or 24 1.4 prime. Anyone have any experience with the Tamron or Sigma zoom. I've never owned a zoom before since I know the primes generally give the best image quality and I'm not shooting weddings or things like that where a zoom would make things easier.

I love the light and shadow in this image. Thank-you for giving some information about how you created it; the chalk eraser idea is genius! I would have forever wondered how the light beams are so visible.
