This short blog is to share some of the images we shot at Deepcut Gardens in Middletown, New Jersey. Today’s mission was to use one camera and one lens, although I’ve brought my entire camera bag. My weapon of choice was the new Nikon Z6 with the Sigma Art 135mm 1.8 lens. This bokeh master lens is ridiculously sharp. Right out the box it worked with the Nikon Z6 and I didn’t have to update it with the Sigma USB Dock. The Nikon Z6 does have some annoyances but I believe I can fix them by going through the menu system. Overall I have to say this is one amazing combination. For those of you looking to go into the Nikon Mirrorless system, I’d say go for it. I love this camera so much I’ll be getting a second one just to do wedding videography.

sigma art 135mm 1.8
What better to celebrate my lil pups birthday than to shoot with a brand new camera and lens. I’ve picked up the Nikon Z6 with the Sigma Art 135mm 1.8 and I have to say what a combo. If the Sigma 105mm 1.4 is known as the Bokeh Master, this lens should be the Bokeh McLicious. Everyone seems to think it’s heavy and it’s not that bad. Shooting the dog I did see a slight problem if you fucus on the nose the eyes are blurry at 1.8. That is to be expected as I was not that far. The background is not that busy which means its a very high quality bokeh. In the past I’ve shot with the Nikon 105mm 1.4 and thought this was the best lens ever made. At half the price those looking to get similar quality will not be unhappy with this lens at all.
