Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens Sample Pictures

Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Lens Sample Pictures
Girl and her Dog Girl and her Dog
This girl and her dog are being lit by a just-set sun. The broad, warm light from this time of the day creates pleasing portrait illumination.
 
65mm  f/8.0  1/40s  ISO 320
Foggy Morning Foggy Morning
Foggy mornings are great for silhouettes. In this picture, I used the grass for a solid base. The viewers eye is going to be drawn to the area of greatest contrast - which is the foreground trees. I positioned these trees about 1/3 of the way into the frame. I positioned myself so that the foreground trees did not overlap but somewhat mesh together with the more-distant trees on the left side of the frame. The ISO 1000 setting was an oversight. :)
 
18mm  f/8.0  1/1000s  ISO 1000
Horses Horses
I was trying to get the dark horse heading into the frame from the bottom left and the light horse heading into the frame from the top right. Getting both heads facing me at the same time was impossible - horses swing their heads side to side and move forward as they graze.
 
70mm  f/8.0  1/80s  ISO 250
Skunk Cabbage Skunk Cabbage
Skunk cabbage is one of the first green plants to show up in early spring. While this plant does not have a welcome aroma, the color of these leaves look great against the stark. For this picture, I oriented the lines in the leaf so that they angled and curved through the frame - and kept the stark background out of the frame.
 
100mm  f/8.0  1/60s  ISO 100
Girl Hugging Dog Girl Hugging Dog
Dogs (clean ones at least) are fun for kids to hug. Animals can help generate the smiles you are looking for in your kid photography.
 
184mm  f/8.0  1/40s  ISO 320
New Maple Leaf New Maple Leaf
The most-perfect leaves are often the youngest leaves. I liked the pattern and colors on this young maple leaf and how they stood out from the forest floor. I chose to keep one leaf completely in the frame and to let the mirroring leaf only partially in the frame.
 
270mm  f/8.0  1/25s  ISO 200
Tightly-Framed Portrait Tightly-Framed Portrait
When framing this tightly, a relatively long focal length will often provide the best "look" for your portrait.
 
270mm  f/6.3  1/40s  ISO 320
Horizon and Sunset Horizon and Sunset
A long focal length lens can capture great sunset pictures from even mediocre sunsets due to their tight framing ability. In this case, I kept the silhouetted horizon in the frame for a base.
 
270mm  f/8.0  1/500s  ISO 100
Red Tulip on Green Red Tulip on Green
When you are getting close to your subject with an even moderately telephoto focal length, and have a distant background, you need to be less concerned about what is in the background and more concerned about the shape and color of what is in the background. Bright grass on a slope yields a bright green base and partially-shaded trees create a darker background that surrounds the red tulip flower.
 
130mm  f/8.0  1/125s  ISO 100
Red Barn and Pin Oak Tree Red Barn and Pin Oak Tree
By getting down very close to the ground, I was able to create a frame around the red barn using a large pin oak tree. I felt that the pin oak tree had more character than the clear sky in this case.
 
18mm  f/11.0  1/30s  ISO 100
Fence, Horses and a Barn Fence, Horses and a Barn
Positioning the white horse fence wires so that they run through the bottom of the frame gives this barn image a different look.
 
18mm  f/8.0  1/40s  ISO 200
Red Barn Details Red Barn Details
You can capture many additional compsitions of a subject when you move in/zoom in and focus on the details. Here, the top of a door frame is positioned about 1/3 of the way into the frame and a hole adds some balance.
 
270mm  f/8.0  1/125s  ISO 100
Rolling Green Hills Rolling Green Hills
A serene scene featuring rolling green fields, hills and clouds against a blue sky.
 
35mm  f/8.0  1/60s  ISO 100
