Nikon D800E with Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens

There are times when I have visited many times a specific location and pretty much have taken all the images I wanted. So, unless there are some very special weather conditions or something has dramatically changed, I will try to take some alternative photos. Usually, the lenses I will pick are either the Nikon 135mm f/2 DC or the Tamron 90mm f.2.8 macro.

I hadn’t taken the 135mm with me on this trip, so the Tamron was the obvious choice.

There are plenty of subjects to experiment with a macro lens, and with the 36mp resolution of the Nikon D800E I can do some heavy cropping which I find a very helpful feature for macro images.

Droplets on Green

Shooting macro many times requires a tripod to nail focus while being able to use a smaller aperture to increase depth of field. On this session, all images were shot handheld. Again, for serious macro work i will rely on a tripod.

I also noticed today that my sensor was way too dirty, so I am for a serious sensor cleaning !

Enjoy the rest of the images.
