Tufted grey Langur – Tamron 150-600mm

Today’s picture is of a Langur from south of India. The picture is taken from a bus far away from the object. Used Canon 70D with a Tamron 150-600mm lens.

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.

Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 3

The expression on this Gibbon’s face says it all. He is so bored. I wanted to make it in sepia to show more loneliness. I kept little color in the picture to give it little effect. The photo was taken through a window but with the Tamron 150-600mm it luckily did not give any reflections or disturbance in the photo. This picture is taken at a focal length of 552mm, f10 and exposure time of 1/60 sec and I used a Canon 70D.


This yellow gibbon is showing off his skill when he is easily and gracefully balancing on a rope. So human like moves. This picture is taken at a focal length of 329 mm, it was raining and the light was not the best. It was cloudy and gloomy. Thanks to his yellowish fur the Gibbon brightens up the picture. Even is this picture I was using Canon 70D, a great camera for wildlife photography.


If you have any questions about the Tamron 150-600mm just let me know and I will answer your questions.

Orangutan mom and baby

I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment.  This picture is taken handheld.

Orangutan thinking a lot

Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.






Monkeys and elephants – Bundala national park

This month I went abroad. I have visited Sri Lanka in Asia. A great opportunity to see wild animals. All pictures have been taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens on a Canon 60D. The pictures are taken in Bundala national park.


Above are some pictures of grey langurs. They come in big groups and dont mind if you stop by for a visit. I was pretty close when I saw the monkeys and they were very busy eating leaves.

I will upload some more pictures of birds in another segment. Do not forget to follow this site to keep yourself updated with more news.

The Sony DSC-HX100V is a small camera with a great zoom. It has 30x zoom which makes it a great camera for all occasions.

When I go to a concert and I am sitting far from the stages I can zoom in pretty close to the artists.

This is how far away from the artist I was standing when I zoomed in, as you can see the artist looks pretty small from where I sat:

Another concert I have been on is with Lionel Richie and I was sitting maybe more than 50 meters away from him. This is a favorite picture of mine.

This camera is good when it is daylight but also sunsets:

Natural light no effects

It is easy to take pictures, it goes fast which is necessary when taking picture of for example animals:

So I think I proved my point with this camera. A great zoom is getting you closer to the object and Sony DSC-HX100V does what it suppose to do. It is not even the newest version. Now there must be even more improved cameras and better zoom maybe even 50x.

Even macro is good with this camera. You can come very close to small objects and still get clear pictures like below is shown:

Even landscape photography goes well with this camera:

I also like to add that the filming is recording in stereo sound. This mean that it wont make big noise when you are playing the video, no noise disturbance. You will be able to hear a clear sound and not like if you would have recorded with your mobile and only hear the base sounds. This camera is great for concerts.
