My Best Bee Macro Shots – Tamron 90mm 2.8

Recently I invested in a Tamron 90mm 2.8 lens, it is simply one of the best lenses I have ever got my hands on! Incredible sharpness, colour, contrast and also amazing macro capabilities. The only area I find rather average is the build quality levels, but for the cheap price their has to be a slight flaw. Guess I will need to careful not to drop it too many times, but I will avoid doing this if possible! I value this lens too much to drop it.

From the things I’ve heard this lens will make a great portrait aswell, as a 135mm equivalent on my D90 it makes it perfect for head shots. Where the 2.8 aperture will do a great job of making the background vanish at the same time.

Macro recently became an area that I wanted to master, it really has been a great fun adventure. While challenging at the same time.

Bees are one of my favourite insects and I shot these last weekend as the sun was just breaking through the trees in late afternoon, was fairly pleased to get this close to these creatures.

My Canon S90 Love: Discovering Macro…

I recently received my new Canon S90 to replace my old Lumix FS15 compact, I’m very pleased to say that I am highly impressed with this new camera. It really is GREAT! As mentioned previously, as good as the Lumix was I became frustrated with the lack of manual control and its dreadful Low light performance.

The Canon on paper seemed to answer my prayers, I have not been dissapointed. This really is one amazing little camera, it has also introduced me the world of Macro (Check out the samples below, it has quite a close focusing distance). I bought the older model as I didn’t feel the S95 had a lot extra to offer for the extra price premium. Looking for a new compact that has adequate low light performance, manual control and is a Canon G12 packed into a pocket friendly body? My advice is to buy one of these today! (I know it sounds like I’m working for Canon)

Hope you like my attempts at Macro/Close up photography..
