The Tamron 70-300mm what a great lens. I’ve read and watched so many bad reviews about this lens but the amount of great feedback from models I’ve shot with and followers on my page has really blown my mind. This is actually a budget lens, you can pick one of these lenses up for as little as £30 second hand I bought mine directly from Amazon as I was shooting a sport event with @timesmedia_ (images to follow below)

I also knew I wanted to have the opportunity to take some family & wildlife photos with Gemma & Roman when I went over to Bradgate park, it took me a little time to get use to this lens as the auto-focus is a little out of focus especially when you zoom due to there being no Vibration Reduction (VR) so you either need a super steady hand or a tripod I’d also recommend shooting in manual using a lower f-stop around f8 and in manual focus if your a beginner this may not be the best lens for you.

However I used this lens on my shoot with @islandgirl_kt the photos have come out exactly as I’d expected and also helped me create a smoother skin texture really helping make her make-up pop giving it a more editorial feel. My most recent shoot with @shereenannalise has also had some incredible feedback this time I used the autofocus and the images have come out spectacularly, I still have a few more of these to edit and upload but you can see more on Instagram in my highlights section

This lens also has a macro mode which I had fun testing on a family trip to the botanical gardens with beautiful flowers and since it’s the middle of spring the bees too. I’ve uploaded a couple of images below

Overall the range of this lens is great although it needs a lot of light, the image quality you can get is brilliant when you considering the price of the lens. It’s more of a struggle at the 300mm end due to camera shake without vibration reduction it’s very difficult to not get motion blur especially if shooting with slower shutter speeds. however let me know what your thoughts are after seeing the images above either drop me a message on Instagram, Facebook or even Twitter and let me know your thoughts. If you own this lens give me your feedback or tips on how to better the lens.
