We have been in the market for an new lens for some time now. There are so many options, it is important we take our time and make sure we get the right lens for our needs. The NIkkor 50mm 1:1.4D that we currently shoot with is great and produces amazing photos, but the fact that it is a fixed lens does limit us at times. So The Bearded Man and The Circus Trainer are determined to find a wide angle lens that has the same or better quality as the NIkkor 50mm but with a bit more range.
They figured the best way to do this was to test a few lenses out and see which ones hold up against The BKc Quality Control Board aka you guys. Our first option is the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC HSM Macro Lens. For the price point it seems to be one of the best on the market. But we wanted to get your opinion on this lens so The Circus Trainer took a few shots using the Sigma lens, lets us know what you think of the quality of the photos.

What do you get when music meets fashion in a private “invite-only” event at an undisclosed location in San Francisco? The Black List. Organized by good friends Damon White and Phil Shell of Otis Lounge, were Hair Play, The Brooklyn Circus SF, Black Scale, Shotwell, & San Franpsycho, in a beautiful three-story building known as The Barrel House. Hands down one of our favorite places we’ve been to in San Francisco thus far, the building consisted of everything from brick and steel, to crystal chandeliers and mosaic stained glass. Also in attendance was DJ Mathieu Schreyer and Rosario Dawson as a portion of all proceeds that night went to charity. We had the opportunity to introduce the brand to some new faces while letting those familiar get to know us even more. Special thanks to Damon and Phil for allowing us to be part of an amazing evening.
The BKc, leather wrist bands have been a hit ever since we introduced them almost two years ago. But we are especially proud of our latest batch of wrist accoutrements, the quality is superb and the leather feels and looks great. This first run was made right here in Brooklyn, so we were able to over see the process and ensure quality pieces that would last long and age well. For now, only a small quantity was produced, we all know what that means, get down to The BKc NYc before they are all gone. The BKc Style + Character and The Hundred Year Plan . . .
