For Valentine’s day, Benson gave me the green light to get a lens! I’ve had my eye on this lens since December, but could never get the guts to push that “buy” button on Amazon until a few days ago. The lens arrived Friday, just in time for this weekend & the beautiful California weather.
The lens is a Tamron 28-75 2.8, which so far has proven to be quite versatile. I photograph mainly to capture my kiddies growing up, so it looks as if this could be one of the only lenses I will need. I may want another in the future, but this is going to hold me over for a long time. The lens is super fast and has made it easy to shoot tight portraits (with blurring the background) as well as wide landscape shots and everything in the middle.
500 shots in, here are some of the results:
