With each new "chef" featured in this series, the analogy between great photographers and fine chefs becomes more relevant. Joining us in the Tamron Kitchen this month is "Chef Roman," whose favorite cuisine brings two different Tamron telephotos to this month's recipes.
Roman Kurywszak joins us in the kitchen. He's an artist, educator, and author, and living just an hour south of me, he is about to become a lunch buddy! From night skies to birds to other critters and flowers, there's really nothing Roman can't photograph. The fun of this episode is in his use of two of Tamron's best-known telephotos expanding into close-up photography.
He wrote in his About section:
I have traveled across the country, giving countless lectures as well as hands-on workshops for a variety of festivals and photo organizations. This allows me to share my passion for photography as others have shared with me.
One of the first things I picked up on during our phone conversation was Roman's passion for the craft. He sets the standard for loving photography, and that desire to share, you pick up immediately. You'll also pick up on his in-depth understanding of his favorite cuisines, right now, birds and flowers.
Camera: Sony a6600
Roman is a big fan of maximizing his gear, and he talks a lot about his love for both of these two telephotos. And living in south Florida, he's rarely limited by the weather - shooting all year long.
