Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens Sample Pictures
Black Cat Looking Down Black Cat Looking Down
A black cat neatly peers from its resting place on a balcony. Only the eyes give away the fact that this is a color photograph. Lighting is ambient indoor daylight.
 
70mm  f/4.0  1/40s  ISO 400
Old Farm Disc Old Farm Disc
Your eye is drawn to the first bolt and area immediately around it on this old farm disc, right? That is what a shallow depth of field will do for you. Use this advantage to draw your viewer's eye to your subject.
 
Another takeaway from this picture is to always be on the lookout for repeating patterns. In this case, the repeating pattern is created by the individual discs and their supporting hardware.
 
70mm  f/2.8  1/60s  ISO 100
Horse Running Wildly Horse Running Wildly
A palomino quarter horses races through its pasture (he is upset that a stablemate is on a trail ride without him). This is the type of action this lens works well for. I was not very successful with auto focus when the action was approaching.
 
67mm  f/2.8  1/800s  ISO 800
Unconventional Floating Unconventional Floating
Kids are creative. Be sure to capture the creativity your own kids show. For this photo, I maximized the size of the floater in the frame by turning the camera on an angle and moving in close. I kept the border of the frame as clear of lines as possible for a clean look. Lighting is from a late-day sun.
 
24mm  f/2.8  1/800s  ISO 100
Loyalsock Creek flows through Worlds End SP Loyalsock Creek flows through Worlds End SP
In this photo, the Loyalsock Creek flows through Worlds End State Park. Even the late morning sun struggles to reach the hemlocks deep in this valley.
 
36mm  f/8.0  1/30s  ISO 160
PA Wilds Barn PA Wilds Barn
Wild phlox lines the foreground of the frame with an attractive barn bearing the PA Wilds logo highlighting the background. The sky is clear, so I reduced the amount of the sky in the frame.
 
36mm  f/11.0  1/30s  ISO 100
Bright Green Ferns Bright Green Ferns
Even with an f/11.0 aperture, the depth of field at 70mm can be rather shallow at relatively short focus distances such as this one.
 
70mm  f/11.0  1/30s  ISO 160
