This 90mm adds on to Tamron’s building reputation as a quality lens manufacturer. This macro lens is very versatile and has a perfect focal length for portrait photography as well as macro photography. The autofocus is quiet, fast and accurate. In low light, the autofocus hunts occasionally, but not to a degree that’s annoying. I love the vibration compensation (VC), which means that you can hand hold it in many situations that with otherwise require that you put it on a tripod.
Affinity Photo 1.9 and Luminar 4 have different perspectives on photo editing. The first aims to provide advanced tools for adjusting and fine-tuning each aspect of your photos. The second embraces Artificial Intelligence (AI) and aims to provide automatic tools for fast and efficient editing without too much human intervention.

On my way to scouting a landscape photography location last year, I came across a wild fox puppy resting in the sun. The only issue was that all my gear was tucked away on my back. Should I risk scaring away the fox puppy, while trying to get my camera? Or should I just enjoy the moment? I managed to crouch down unnoticed and take off the backpack, put it on the ground and reach for my camera. At that point, the fox puppy noticed me and snug away. I was lucky later to get a second chance of a one-to-one photography session with the curious fox puppy when my gear was ready. However, I might as well had missed the opportunity altogether because my gear was stored on my back.
This tablet has changed the way I work with my images in post-processing. Everything from edge refinement, creating precise masks, dodge and burn and so on, becomes easier and more precise. Everybody is used to writing with a pencil. It is much more relaxing and natural for your arm and hand, which you can also see in the final results.
This was my first DSLR camera. Even though it wasn’t a cheap, priced just above $1.000, I preferred a camera that I wouldn’t feel lacked essential features as I explored which way my photography journey would take me. Other photographers that I met started out with very cheap cameras but soon felt they needed to upgrade to a more advanced DSLR. After two or three cameras they ended at the top of the enthusiast range, where you find the D7100/D7200. You might as well begin with a camera that you are satisfied with for at least the first three years.
