Art for Arts Sake

December 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Back in November I shot the Jones Brothers (Matt and Jono), for MAXXIS Tyres, which until now has been embargoed from publication. They are two of the UK's most talented siblings on two wheels and although, they compete in differing disciplines of MTB'ing, they have been brought together under the MAXXIS umbrella for 2018.

The shoot was at the Woburn Bike Trail in Bedfordshire and as the weather was a bit overcast, was going to prove challenging under the woodland cover.

I had only just picked up the New Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART so was keen to see how it performed under challenging conditions. I needn't have worried. I quickly gained confidence in the lens so after shooting some product incidentals and portraits, lit with Eninchrom lights, I decided to try it out on some action too. The 1.8 aperture was great for creating a shallow depth of field and drawing your eye into the MAXXIS logo on the tyres. I was also extremely pleased with the facial rendition, sharp focus, excellent colour rendition and superlative bokeh on the portraits (which I had read so much about).

In addition to the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART, the following images were shot on the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM ART and Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM ART with Canon EOS 1DX bodies. Although all of these lenses are 'ART' lenses, their excellent build quality, speed of focus and incredible sharpness doesn't just restrict their usage to studio! You can create Art anywhere with them.

Enjoy the images.
