Photographer Stefan Eisend put the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD through its paces at the Ilulissat Icefjord.

Avoiding typical image mistakes


Those who make no mistakes learn nothing! This saying, which definitely applies to all areas of life, is particularly pertinent when it comes to photography. Every photographer makes mistakes in some shape or form. And that’s good! Because every mistake is an opportunity to learn something, and keep improving.

One day in Venice


When setting off on a quick getaway to Venice a few days ago, we didn’t want to cart all our camera equipment with us, so we chose Tamron’s AF 18-270-mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD travel zoom lens as an alternative. Its focal distance ranges from extreme wide angle to super tele, and the zoom range on the APS-C sensor extends to 27-405 mm (equivalent to 35-mm format), which is perfect for capturing the diverse subjects found in a city like Venice using one single lens.

Taking really sharp macro shots


Close, closer, macro! Tamron has two lenses for ambitious photographers to discover the magic of macrophotography. Both offer maximum magnification of 1:1, meaning you can capture your subjects in their original size.

Exposure (3): The art of manual exposure


If you ask a professional photographer which camera settings they use, the answer is surprisingly often: “I shoot in manual mode.” Pros adjust aperture and shutter speed to the existing light conditions depending on the situation – by hand. They often prefer to trust their own experience rather than the camera’s automatic function.
