Welcome to our third episode of Tamron Recipes. Looking back on the original idea, it seemed like a fun way to introduce you to some talented artists and at the same time Tamron's outstanding optics. We underestimated how much fun this would be to share, and the fantastic insight each artist would bring to the podcast part of each recipe.
We've all heard people talk about "the recipe for success." That recipe is always changing depending on the individual, but as we've shared in each post, there are still four essential ingredients.
What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients:
choose a career you love, give it the best there is in you, seize your opportunities, and be a member of a team.
Tara Ruby joins us, and she's another amazing artist who lives by that quote from Ben Fairless: Tara loves the career path she's chosen, and it's evident in each image she shares. She defines the art of listening when working with her clients. Her goal with each subject never changes - to tell their story in each image and exceed the client's expectations. She never compromises on anything but giving each photograph her very best. And, without question, Tara's part of a remarkable team, the Tamron family.
About the Image and the 15-30mm G2 lens: Tara told us the 15-30 mm has become her "go to" lens and sent us several images to choose from. In the photograph we chose for today's recipe, we loved the narrow depth of field and her camera angle. Put that together with her lighting, and it was different from so many sleeping baby images we've seen.
About "Chef" Tara: Tara's focus for her business is in three parts: Motherhood, Military, and Memories. She's a passionate artist, and as you wander into her website three slides come up that tell you everything you need to know about her:
Stay tuned for Part II of Tara's Tamron Recipes, and you'll spot her love for the craft in everything she talks about in the podcast. Plus, we'll be sharing more of her work. Check out Tara's website with a click on her image above and then join us next week for her podcast.

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
