    Tamron 17-50 goes to work

    Took the Tamron AF 17-50mm f2.8 on the new a700 to work with me the other day. just to get a feel for the camera and the lens. Shot at random on auto setting. Not bad at all for just point and shooting more or less. inside shots are under pretty bad lighting. will post more later, have some more outdoor.

    Don you took the words right off my keyboard. LOL Now see what you can do with the picture hanging on the wall. LMAO They need to add a level in the view finder. I have the same problem. Too many things to worry about. Maybe Sony can have a self leveling camera to go along with the SSS. ( I am going to pattern the idea )

    level headed

    thanks for the fix. I didnt do anything to the pics but resize them for here. maybe go a bit smaller yet with that. how about a digital level across the top of the viewfinder? a little led bubble? I would pay for that!
    I do like the color texture and image feel from the lens, now to keep working on operator I/Q
    dull hazey dreary cloudy but so far dry day here in ohio, wonder what the camera might see?

    Red face Interior design ...

    Well ... that portrait simply cannot stand like that ... so I took a little liberty in re-hanging it.

    Then again ... they say you can do wonders with a crop ... but, you still have to meter correctly. Bright sun is not the photographer's friend.

    Here's my boy ... under clouds ... where metering is easier to correct, also when tighter on the subject(s). Not so contrasty and you can almost count the hairs on his mug,

    Given some more time with your new lens, you will begin to note its true strengths, indoors and outdoors ... because 90% of photography is managing the light source, be it the sun ... or a candle.

    About the guy sitting at his desk, with the lamp behind him ... uh, frame out the lamp and shut it off, next time. Remember, the viewer's eyes seek the brightest spot in the photograph. Normally, that should be the subject ... or something very close.
