Art Basel - A Visual Photographic Experience

We now have a new format for the blog, in case you haven’t noticed, it’s a lot cleaner and it’s allowing the images to pop better than before.   Thanks to the team at Pax Rodentia who created the site for me - Stephan and Usha!  Not sure how many of you hit the art fairs, and I’m not necessarily speaking about the weekend fairs many do during the summer months, but the commercial ones that tend to be in major cities around the world.  Right now the largest one, IMO, is the Art Basel show in Miami Beach.  Art Basel isn’t just one show.  I think right now there are 14 different art venues around the Beach and the City of Miami proper.  These shows have names like Aqua Art Miami, Pulse, Scope, Context, PHOTO, NADA, Art Miami, Red Dot, Art Asia, and the Miami Art Project.  People from all over the world come here for four days of non-stop art action.  The people watching can be a real kick, and for all of us photographers a target rich area.  I’m fortunate that the gallery, which represents my work, is down here this weekend.  ZIA|Gallery is attending the Aqua Art Miami show, and I’ve had a chance to see a couple of the other venues besides the one I’m in.  For this trip I brought along the Sigma DP2 Merrill and the Olympus OM-D5 for high ISO shooting: i.e., shooting at night.  I thought I’d have some fun and shoot both cameras with a 30mm Sigma lens.  Both are f/2.8 lenses, with the Sigma being built in the camera, and the Oly equivalent being one of Sigma’s new Micro Four Thirds lenses, (which by the way can be had a t a phenomenal price of $149 from Amazon, B&H, and Adorama.  The shots posted were predominately shot wide open at f/2.8.  Thought I’d give you a quick overview of the visuals that can be had down here during Art Basel.  It’s a trip that you should consider taking one day.  Great visuals no matter where you look!
