Even without a macro lens, it is entirely possible to take great pictures of flowers. We realised this one day when we discovered several wood anemones by the golden light of the afternoon sun. The Anemone nemorosa doesn't normally bloom until April, but the mild winter has given us an early floral start this year.
Nature- and architecture photographers know how important light is for magnificent shots. If the sun is high in the sky, the contrasts are too hard and the light is too flat. Ideal times however are dusk and dawn. Depending on the point of time, the light then is soft or warm, emphasizing the structures and shaping the motive details.
Tamron is developing a cutting-edge high-power zoom lens, with expanded focal lengths at both wide-angle and telephoto ends of the zoom range, providing a zoom ratio of approximately 18.8X.
Photographer Mike Fuchs has a foible for snow and ice. On April the man from Berlin started his next polar expedition. He carries the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2,8, with him, which has proven itself as a reliable partner in extreme conditions.
