It is that time of year again: Sigma Shoot

We would like to announce the next Sigma Shoot. Some time ago, it was decided to do these at the seasonal changes. Therefore, the next Shoot begins on June 21 and ends on June 28.

We are proposing that seasonal change remains the topic, but with a twist. We would like you to show something of where you live at the same time. Therefore, this shoot should be done near or around your home, or whatever serves as home during this period. Specifically, we would like you to limit yourself to a radius of about 100 yards or meters of your home.

Obviously, this is not spring springing or fall falling. This is hunkering down for winter in the south and the heat of summer in the north. Change is therefore perhaps less important. However, season and place are.

We look forward to your images. We will provide more details as the date approaches and then again toward the end of the week on posting. Once again, we will make a gallery. Since we have a little more room there now, you may submit two or three images; however, we will stick to half size this time as well.

Once again, we would like to urge members of the Foveon and Sigma companies to join us. Their contributions enriched the last Shoot.

Unfair to those of us on the English system. Those on the metric system are going to get almost 10 meters more radius!

Than we should use a Klafter

this is another medieval measurement system and we are using all the same.
(A Klafter varies between 1.7 meter and 3 m)

Does the camera have to be within 100 m or the image the camera shooting be within 100m? I may need to get a bigger tele.

Wow! Just in time for the Summer Solstice Orgy

Annual event in my backyard but I may be too busy to shoot any pics. Maybe I'll get a photo of several hundred pounds of dead cicada that I'll have by then.

I like the twist, and look forward to working within the confines of the shoot. I assume that things that lay further than 100 meters away from the house can at least be in the frame...

Champa is already cheating

After discovering SPP sliders, she now uses measurement inflation. The rule is 100 yards or meters. And if we are lucky, Sigma will release the GPS III attachment as planned next week. This will be required for you.
