For the first time in contemporary history, we're ALL in the same boat. While the limitations vary from state to state, we're all limited in what we can do. Direct social interaction is virtually non-existent, but we've still got cyberspace. And there are plenty of opportunities to interact and grow your skillset.
In the last week, Tamron launched a new series, "5 at 5." They're short videos to help you expand your skillset, but even better, each video is a different project. For years so many of us have talked about special projects to help you focus on your creativity and love for the craft when your regular work might be losing its glow.
It's Tamron Tuesday, and I pulled a favorite to share, Jillian Bell's piece, "Tips for Macro Photography." Jillian is part of Tamron's Tech Team. She does a terrific job sharing five project ideas for fine-tuning your macro skills, with or without macro gear.
And if you don't know Mike Moats, one of Tamron's Image Masters, I purposely chose his image of the keys above to kick off today's post. He's one of the most recognized macro/closeup photographers and educators in the industry. Just click on his image to visit his website, Tiny Landscapes, and make sure you check out his workshops.
Just because everybody is hunkered down, Doesn't mean Tamron's slowed down on giving back to the industry. From their website to their YouTube channel, they're sharing more helpful content every day. Plus, some great instant savings are going on right now to help you expand your gear and take advantage of spring seasonality for the Mom, Dad, or graduate in your life who are interested in photography!
Tamron's making some of the finest glass in photography! Isn't time you checked out what all the buzz was about?
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.
