    It's been awhile since I shared any photos on here and since I just received my new Tamron 90mm Macro I thought it would be nice to share a few flower shots that I took.

    I went over to a florist to pick up some flowers but just like fruit, good flowers are hard to find this time of year.

    I've lost some detail due to jpeg compression and resizing the image but I don't think they turned out to bad. Going to have to shoot more in .NEF (RAW).

    Pictures were taken with my D80 and SB600 flash. I just taped an 8x10 sheet of paper to the flash to help diffuse the light and played around with the amount of light striking the flower.

    Comments are welcome and appreciated.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment! Ya, flowers are quickly becoming one of my favorite subjects. Insects will be too once Spring and Summer returns to Chicago.

    So far, the Tamron was a great choice (for me). From the reviews I've read, it seems that it's hard to go wrong with a Macro Lens from Tamron, Sigma or Tokina (lenses that I read reviews on). They all seem to be in the same ballpark as far as quality. Read reviews and take a look at images shot with the lens your looking to buy and see what will work best for you.

    Thanks!

    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Thanks. My next project will be a home made light tent to get my lighting in order.
