If you are determined, we can't stop you. Indeed, the best thing that can be done is to reach into the Sigma cabinet and pull out the 14mm f:1.8 DG HSM Art lens and let you put it on your Nikon or Canon. Then you can head out for your architecture, landscape, or astro photography and we can feel that we've done our best for you. You will not go away lightly - you'll be adding 1120 g to your burden, and if this is out bush to get the landscape or the star view, that's a significant weight. No wonder- the barrel is fully professional and there are 16 elements - three of them aspherical - inside it. You 'll be operating the aperture electro-mechanically with either mount and you'll also have a option to add a rear filter if you're using the Canon version. Quite what you can do with a filter arrangement up the front is beyond me - this is a very wide view of the universe for a full-frame camera - and the adaptation you'll need for...

I've met photographers who have changed their entire systems when a competitor came out with a camera that had a higher shutter speed. However this was achieved - mechanically or electronically - it was the primary factor in their photography. For some it was because the subjects they photographed were in constant rapid motion with peaks of an even more frantic pace. None of these shooters was shooting architecture or real estate. Buildings don't move. Jolly well everything else does, however, from the traffic to the clouds to the sun to the wind - and not to mention the people who inhabit the buildings. And the building photographer - inside or outside - has to take this into account. a. The professional architectural photographer. They are paid by the builders, architects, owners, and tenants to record what a building looks like as it is being constructed, finished, occupied, and changed. They have a strong streak of landscape shooter in them as their subjects are large and occupy large spaces. Their equipment can be expensive and the way they are required to employ it can...

Well, you enter the York Society Inc.'s annual photographic contest for one, as we reported in the last column. And you also a. Go up the top of Mt. Brown lookout and see the whole sweep of the place. b. Hit the York Motor Museum and lose the rest of the day looking at the old cars. They do pension and seniors discounts too. c. Shop in the local craft and country shops. Foods, pottery, clothing, utensils, collectibles and...

Putting a bracket on the universe sounds like rather a large undertaking - daily we are being told that it expands ever further from our comprehension - rather like federal taxation reform and the GST. Stephen Hawking understands the universe but has thrown his hands up on the other two...

Seriously tripod. Seriously light. Seriously Gitzo.*The travel tripod is a major division of the photo accessory world - thank goodness. People have recognised that they need the sort of support that a tripod brings to their architecture, travel, and landscape shots. Even with the mind-boggling stabilisation systems on board modern cameras (Ask the Fujifilm, Nikon, and Olympus reps about this next time they have a demonstration day in the shop, but be prepared for a full lecture...
