"Don't just stand there; make something happen!"
Welcome back to Tamron Recipes. This is our fifth episode, and the insight shared by each guest keeps getting better and better. There are a few common denominators with all of these fine "chefs," their passion for what they're doing in imaging and a never-wavering quest for success.
The Lee Iacocca quote we found seemed like it was written for Lisa. She never slows down in her quest to capture images that stop us in our tracks. She's making things "happen," and in turn having an impact on her students, fans and the world of fine art in nature photography. She's focused not only on her subjects but pushing the creative envelope with her technique.
Looking through her galleries, it was so hard to choose images to share with today's podcast. One image we wanted to make sure was part of the series is the companion portrait of the hummingbird with the wasp in the scene. We shared our favorite of the two in last week's post.
Lisa used Tamron's 70-210mm /F4 Di VC USD lens on a Canon EOS 7D body. Each Tamron Recipe is always in two parts, starting with an outstanding image, followed by the story behind it, as well as more about the "chef."
Lisa's first recipe in the Tamron Kitchen is just a click away. And, check out the 70-210 lens with a click on the thumbnail to the right.

Visiting Lisa's galleries you'll immediately notice her diversity as a photographer and an artist. There's such a wide variety of presentations. In describing her approach to fine art nature photography she wrote:
Making wildlife photography something people want to hang in trendy, well-decorated and designed homes requires transforming how we perceive what constitutes “nature photography.” We must go beyond the “rules” and restrictions long-associated with “classic” magazine and calendar-style photography. It requires re-imagining how we photograph, process, print and display our work so that it is on-trend with the decorative and artistic look of today’s indoor environments.
