A few snaps with the Tamron 28-300vc and Fuji S5
love that first one, Charles
nothing wrong with CHEAP glass.... when they are being used by an EXPENSIVE photographer... :smile:
nice work Chas
He was talking to me while and then it got quiet. I turned around to find him like that. Something about that old leather couch that makes you sleepy.
Thanks. Don't tell my clients I am expensive. :wink:
Thanks. I thought I would post them here since family snap shots don't belong in the portraiture forum.
contrary to that Charles they are fine in portraiture.
I couldn't resist. LOL
Nice shots and I agree, I have some great pics from my cheap 70-300 Sigma
At some point along the way I have had just about every pro lens that Nikon makes under 200mm. My favorite shots came from the 50 primes.
that first shot is breathtaking! The B&W conversion is spot on!!!
How did you end up with a Tammy 28-300VC?
I love the first, you really did capture the innocence and peace of all children embodied in this little guy. Very nice Charles!
Nice work Charles, great shots are all the better when they've not cost the Earth
Thats straight from the Fuji S5. I set it to b&w, widest DR, hardest tone, and no sharpening or noise removal.
I have been playing a lot with 3rd party lenses lately. Now I have 2 Tamrons which are the 17-50/2.8 and the 28-300vc. Two Sigmas that are the 50-150/2.8 and the 100-300/4.
Mostly because they offer something that Nikon does not have. The 17-50 tamron is much smaller than the nikon. The 28-300 offers OK image quality in a very wide range with stabilization that is excellent. With great technique I can get sharp 2 second shots, handheld. :wink:
Thank you, but he did all the work. I just pushed the button.:wink:
Everything has a cost. Some is just less than others.
D2x + 28-300
300mm, f/11, 1/25
knock out smile on your avitar.
Oddly enough, I find that the D2x does better with red roses using the right setup, than my Fuji S5. That just baffles my mind at this point. Time to do some testing. :smile:
