Tamron 90mm – a rose

I went to a rose show where they had a lot of roses and other flowers. Tamron 90mm lens is one of a kind. I really like the macro lens. It’s great value for your money and it takes splendid pictures.

Raindrops and crowns

Practicing speed? Then taking pictures of raindrops is a good way to practice to take the picture at the right time. You might have to take 100’s of pictures but you will at least get few good ones.  I am practicing for a marathon that will take place tomorrow, I will be the sport photographer. When I went to see the path they are going to run I came across a little dripping waterfall. It is a source for iron water. The wall is orange because of all the iron in the water. It gave a nice background color to the pictures I am about to show you.


When the drops hit the ground waves and crowns will be formed. If you can capture those you can have amazing pictures. I also like to keep the funny looking creations that is made after the drop has hit the ground, I am showing one of those in the picture collage below.

All these pictures are taken handheld with Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro lens and Canon 70D. It is taken without flash, the only light used was the sunlight.

You look very interesting, let me have a look at you.

Monkey takes an interest for the camera lens. Maybe it is trying to see itself in the reflection. Taken with Canon 70D and Tamron 90mm with f9.

I got an eye on you…literally

Canon 70D+Tamron 90mm f2.8. “I got an eye on you!”


This chameleon is king of his branch and in full control. It is blending in nicely with the green background. With the Tamron 90mm lens you get a nice blur or bokeh in the background when you use aperture 2.8. It was kind of dark where the chameleon were but with some glimpse of light coming through it makes it a mystical picture.

Don’t want to bug you…

…but it is summer and it is a great time for macro.

Wherever you go you will find a insect, weather you like it or not. The bugs are easier to spot and there are more chances to take those nice macro shots.

I found a nice looking creature when I was out walking. I found a colorful orange/black striped bug called Graphosoma lineatum in Latin. It probably have several names in different languages. It was easy to work with the bug because it was completely still and staring at me. It made a good pose on that stone too. When the bug had enough it just walked away.

Flowers in a macro world

I have posted a lot of articles about Tamron 150-600mm. This time it will be about Tamron 90mm f2.8. I have  used a Canon 70D for this picture. I can really recommend Tamron 90mm 2.8 as a great macro lens. It is also a cheaper alternative to the Canon 100mm macro lens. Tamson 90mm do not have image stabilizer, but I have been able to take really nice pictures even without that. I am using the older model of the 90mm lens. Now there is a newer version which is waterproof.

I love to take macro pictures. It is like being in another world. You can look at a flower and see its beauty, but only if you get really close you can see all the amazing details.

Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro Lens

The Tamron 90 mm 2.8 macro lens is a superb lens to have. It is a good lens for taking pictures of insects, flowers and portraits etc but do not limit yourself only to those objects. This lens is good for so many more things. That I will prove here.

I have also found that it takes good picture in sport events. For example when I took pictures in a dance competition it took clear pictures even if the dancers were moving fast. That means it is a fast  lens as well.
