More 50mm Fixed Focal Length Food Porn


The F/1.4 50mm SIGMA lens continues to be a bundle of pure joy. I still wouldn’t say I’ve entirely mastered its use, as I find myself having to take more exposures with it than I normally would to get good results, but the results I do get are often stunning. Take a look at some of my most recent shots.

Ah, escarole and bean soup. I love the way you can control the depth of field by adjusting the aperature far more creatively than with the kit lens.

The only thing I did different on this one was adjust the F stop. Totally different effect on the picture.

Even one of our pedestrian Chinese stir-frys looks quite exciting through the new SIGMA F/1.4

I really like this particular wok shot.

Tasty results.

Mmmmm. Meat.

  1. Oh boy, if it weren’t so hot, I’d just dive right into that escarole soup.

    There’s nothing like a love affair with a new lens, is there? My 50mm lives on my camera and only comes off when I swap it out for my new 35mm prime. The clarity can’t be beat, especially for the price.

    Very nice! The photography is beautiful. A new lens is always a lot of fun, but in this case I think it’s more the photographer mastering his tools. Nice job, Jason.

    My 17-55mm f/2.8 lives on my camera. The versatility is wonderful but it’s a little heavy. I might have to dig out my lightweight 50mm again.

    Gah… So. Beautiful!

    Why do you have to go and raise the bar in the midst of a recession? Now I’m going to have to buy a new camera…

    hm….now I’m going to have to seriously reconsider getting a new camera for my birthday.

  7. I loved my Nikon 50mm f1,4 on my Nikon D80, it was almost permanently affixed. Unfortunately when I stepped up to the D300 the larger sensor size caused the focal point to be much further than with the D80 and the 50mm became useless for food blogging. What I was really after was a prime lens with macro capabilities but I have not yet found one. I compromised and got the Sigma 18-50mmm Macro that has a constant aperture of f.2.8. I is a great lens and highly recommended for blogging since it is wide enough to take shots of rooms and buildings as well as close up details.
