Wil Mijer has been trying out the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens, and has been astounded by its performance. 

Based in the Netherlands, Wil has always been fascinated by tiny things. He's now world renowned for his images and says the main thing to make images successful is to avoid blurriness caused by movement. 

"I usually take photos using a tripod or a cherry pit cushion. Furthermore, I use a remote shutter release and work in live mode. With the new SP 90mm, however, I can skip using the tripod once in a while."

The Tamron SP 90mm has a fantastic image stabiliser which allows the user to take very sharp images hand held. The full article can be found in Tamron's magazine, which is available to view online for free

 

3 Top Tips For Macro Photos From Wil Mijer: 

1) Get up early

The best macro photos are taken shortly after the sun rises. Because of the coldness of the night, butterflies and dragonflies are stiff and cannot fly away. It is a beautiful thing to witness them "waking up".

2) Select a large aperture opening

I prefer taking my photos with a wide open aperture, such as 2.8 or 3.5. This gives me the ideal sharpness level with wonderful blurriness effects. The images seem like they have taken from a fairy tale.

3) Watch your image setup

Think of a good composition prior to taking your picture. I like to allow some "room" for my main motif. Dewdrops sparkling in the background create beautiful Bokeh effects in the photo.
