I'm going to start the new year -- by taking a cue from photographer Luca Rossini - http://www.lucarossini.it/category/366nex/
His way with capturing the dramatic from the mundane is inspiring. And I've always gravitated to the aesthetic of compositions in low light, and until recently I have had a difficult time with the mechanics until acquiring the Sigma 30mm f2.8. f2.8 is not particularly fast - but at least it is constant.
Auto ASA is a sexy option - but I like to stay below 1600 and 2.8 will make that a bit easier - and it is really sharp.
Lowlight is the goal - now I just need to set aside the time to get out and shoot.
