The Sigma 85mm 1.4 DG DN lens offers a focal length that allows photographers to create stunning images with a compelling perspective. With its medium-telephoto range, this lens enables you to maintain a comfortable distance from your subjects. But you can still capture the fine details and emotions in their expressions.

A really relaxed photo walk through the streets of Warsaw with Matthew, who joined me from the UK. It's nice sometimes to return after a long break from recording in your own city. Also, a classic setup with the Sigma 85mm 1.4 DG DN guarantees quality images in all conditions.

What I love about this lens is its exceptional low-light performance. Street photography often involves shooting in various lighting conditions, including low-light situations. The wide aperture of f/1.4 in this lens excels in challenging lighting environments, allowing for faster shutter speeds and lower ISO settings. This means you can freeze moments in time without sacrificing image quality. It's possible even when lighting conditions are less than ideal.

The ability to create stunning bokeh is another advantage of the Sigma 85mm 1.4 DG DN lens. By using the wide aperture, you can isolate your subject from the background, blurring the surroundings to create a dreamy effect. The smooth and creamy bokeh produced by this lens adds an artistic touch to your street photographs.

While street photography often involves capturing candid moments from a distance, the Sigma 85mm 1.4 DG DN lens provides versatility for other photographic scenarios as well. Its focal length is ideal for environmental portraits. It allows you to include elements of the street scene while highlighting the subject. Moreover, the lens's autofocus speed and accuracy ensure that you can quickly and accurately capture fleeting moments, keeping up with the fast pace of street life.

So grab your camera and put on the Sigma 85mm lens. Go out and hit the streets to explore the world through this unique point of view.
