    Day 30: Ladybird on corn leaf

    Today marked the end of my first month with the Tamron 18-270. It’s been a real eye-opener, and I’m starting to look for things to photograph wherever I go. I’m becoming aware of the limits of the lens, which in turn is forcing me to find creativ...

    Photo365 - 267 - leaf

    As you may know from reading some of my blog entries I like to mess around with unsual lens combinations. This morning I attached the Toy lens onto the Olympus EP2 and then screwed in a +10 macro lens. This macro lens is part of an old fisheye macr...

    Day 27: Sidewinder

    Sidewinder... …Actually, just a curly strip of paper on another bit of paper, but I love the way that the low lighting picks up the textures. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 270mm; 200 ISO; f/10; 1/320 second. VC on.

    Day 21: Female Migrant Hawker

    This may not be the most artistic photo I’ve taken today, but one thing struck me about it. I took three lenses out with me today, and the 18-270 was the only one that would have given me this result. The dragonfly was slightly too far away even ...

    Photo365 - 255 - fungi forage

    My first trip into the woods to photograph fungi. I combined the 90min walk with part of a bag review I'm doing. So I filled the backpack full of items I would use and items I wouldn't to get a feel for what it's like at full capacity. This is a ...

    Day 14: Common Hawkers

    We had a sudden improvement in the weather this morning, which brought the local dragonfly population out in droves. The 18-270 wasn’t the only lens I took out with me today, but it was the only one I could use to get a shot of this amorous coupl...

    Day 8: Playing with textures

    In a rush today, but I still wanted to challenge myself. I decided to play with texture overlays (all in camera), so I used the long end of the 18-270 to take a shot of my laminate flooring with motion blur, and sandwiched it against a shot of Ba...

    Day 7: A welcome surprise…

    With today seeing a marked improvement in the weather, I ventured out to the local nature reserve again, to try to see how well the 18-270 would handle a close-up. Boy was I shocked! Bearing in mind that this is not taken with a macro lens; that ...

    Day 3: Totally Forked…

    Tried out the close range abilities of the 18-270mm today. The documentation of the lens will tell you that it can focus as closely as 50cm away. In real world terms, this is only about twice the distance from the front lens element to the eyepiece...

    Photo365 - 177 - Clover

    I spent a lazy day today sunbathing and it must have not only frazzled my skin but also my brain, because i couldn't remember whether I'd used a photo of clover in my photo365. I'd certainly spent one session photographing it...but I went for a grass...

    Photo365 - 165 - Caterpillar

    Well actually having looked it up, it's not really a caterpillar, it's a larvae from the sawfly. I get these every year on my Solomon's Seal plant that I photographed earlier in my photo365 series. The species is known as the Solomon's seal sawfly. I...

    Comparisons and Working Distances.

    Following on from my previous blog I thought I'd put side by side comparisons of the different set ups that produced similar sizes of the subject in the photograph. This shows the difference in working distance that can be achieved which can be usefu...

    Using a 70-200mm lens for close-up photography.

    This is a quick test to see if a Canon 70-200mm f4 L IS lens with a closest focus of approximately 1200mm is a good lens for butterfly and close-up photography. The idea was to see how close the focus was using combinations of extension tubes and...

    Photo365 - 44 - Snowdrop

    It's that time of year when the snowdrops poke through the still hardened soil. I like these first signs of spring. I have a few in the garden...when I say few it's just that..three clumps of two or three flowers on each. So choosing the right one di...
