Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens Sample Pictures
Whitespire Birch Tree Trunks Whitespire Birch Tree Trunks
A clump of whitespirebirch tree trunks provides three-dimensionality within a narrow range of colors. Long focal lengths isolate a small area of view - offering a wide range of compositions of a scene visible from a single position.
 
300mm  f/11.0  1/160s  ISO 100
What it Takes to be a Winner What it Takes to be a Winner
Sometimes all it takes to be a winner is to raise your arms when the picture is taken. Fields at the top of mountains allow for an undistracting sky background.
 
238mm  f/5.6  1/800s  ISO 250
Clump of White Crocuses Clump of White Crocuses
Clumps of crocuses are not hard to find, but finding the right composition to capture them in is much more difficult. In this frame, I aligned the flowers so that they formed an extended S-curve through the frame. The top-right crocus stands out with the higher contrast against the background and the eye is also drawn to the in-focus crocus about 1/3 of the way into the frame.
 
300mm  f/5.6  1/320s  ISO 100
Eastern Chipmunk Eastern Chipmunk
This eastern chipmunk is watching for danger while filling its pouches with sunflower seeds. The ideal wildlife subject positioning is often from the side. Here I cropped the little animal in-camera so that the head was aligned at the left 1/3 frame line and so that the stripe was curving out of the frame from near the right 1/3 frame line. The rest of the frame border remains clean thanks to the background blur created by the close subject combined with the telephoto focal length.
 
249mm  f/5.6  1/200s  ISO 1600
Sun Dog Sun Dog
Long focal lengths make it easy to isolate sections of the sky - and the sky is often filled with interesting compositions. In this case, a Sun Dog shows the visible light spectrum broken down.
 
300mm  f/8.0  1/400s  ISO 100
A Young Photographer A Young Photographer
A young photographer works a clump of white crocuses.
 
109mm  f/5.6  1/200s  ISO 100
Frisking Palomino Quarterhorse Frisking Palomino Quarterhorse
This palomino quarterhorse is not happy about being left behind while its pasture-mates go for a trail ride.
 
300mm  f/5.6  1/500s  ISO 100
Golden Retriever Head Shot Golden Retriever Head Shot
Late day sun provides great lighting for your dog shots. In this case, the golden retriever is sitting in the grass with a distant forest providing the blurred background.
 
300mm  f/8.0  1/40s  ISO 100
Sisters on Horses Sisters on Horses
Two young sisters trot their quarterhorses across a mountaintop field.
 
300mm  f/5.6  1/800s  ISO 250
Weeping Norway Spruce Pine Cones Weeping Norway Spruce Pine Cones
A pair of weeping norway spruce pine cones assist me with demonstrating background blur.
 
300mm  f/5.6  1/320s  ISO 100
Four Trunks Four Trunks
Four whitesprice birch tree trunks divide this frame into four parts.
 
249mm  f/11.0  1/160s  ISO 100
Chipmunk with an Itch Chipmunk with an Itch
This is not the greatest picture, but ... the eastern chipmunk with a big itch makes me laugh. What I don't like about the shot is that it is not as sharp as I prefer. And, the very edgy quality of the background blur is not pretty. Certain background textures that are not completely blurred can be rendered poorly by telephoto focal lengths. This photo is a perfect example of this.
