With each new chef, I like to find a quote that seems to fit some aspect of their love for photography and this industry. It was pretty easy to find a quote that fit 'Chef" Cecil. Even if he admits that boiling water is a stretch, the Tamron Kitchen brings together some of the finest imaging ingredients in photography that showcase not only the artist's skill set but the passion for the craft.
Cecil shares a lot of good insight in this new podcast, especially when it comes to how he got started and how much photography has grown to be a part of his life and his family's. Whether it's traveling to the Tetons or just home at his dining room table with some classic window light and a daisy, capturing his next image is often on his mind. At the same time, his values about family and friends never waver.
We chose two images for the first part of this recipe because they represent two extremes of imaging, the night sky, and a macro closeup. Cecil was shooting with the Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 for the night skies and the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD for the daisy. Then, we had fun sharing screenshots from his galleries that represent everything in between.
"Chef" Cecil's recipe is a click away if you missed it when it was posted last Tuesday. For more information on these two extraordinary pieces of glass, click on the thumbnails below.
