How to Remove a Tattoo in Photoshop

In this video from Aaron Nace at Phlearn, you’ll see how you can use Photoshop to remove tattoos from your subjects.

Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art Lens Now In Stock for Canon EF

Sigma 24-35mm F2 Art Lens

B&H has the new Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art lens in stock and now shipping for Canon EF mount. The Nikon version should be in stock soon.

The new 24-35mm zoom is the second large aperture zoom lens Sigma has launched recently. It follows the impressive Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art lens for APS-C cameras and is the first time we’ve seen an f/2 zoom for a full frame DSLR.

Sigma claims that optical performance of the new zoom lens is comparable to Sigma’s 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art and 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lenses. As such, Sigma suggests that it can replace 24mm, 28mm and 35mm prime lenses in your camera bag with this single zoom lens.
