"I used a +3 close-up dioptre to get right in with the Tamron 18-270 PZD. Normally when you use an internal-focus lens, the focal length decreases the closer you focus (at minimum distance, your 270mm actually becomes a 150mm lens, but Tamron are good enough to mention this in their manuals). The dioptre allows you to focus the lens nearer the middle of its range, getting greater maximum magnification for your lens, and giving the lovely, shallow depth-of-field that comes with a longer focal length," says David.

"The Tamron 18-270 PZD does give you a lot of flexibility for this sort of thing. Generally with flowers, you’re looking to isolate them from the background. Usually you’ll do this with a long lens and a moderate aperture," explains David.
