New lens, lots of new photos

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 18, 2012, 11:15 AM


Yeah, I got my new lens tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD last week and I've been photographing more than ever.
Been going outside everyday to take pics and I think I've taken more photos in the past week than the whole summer before.
I'm loving the lens, although ofcourse it has it's limitations. It works great on a sunny day but when it's a bit darker the aperture just isn't enough and can't get sharp pics.
But I think it's great lens considering what it costs. And it does give me so much more opportunities with photography now that I can zoom.
Like shooting insects and animals and better close-ups of my cats. So yeah I'm happy. :la:

I was gonna make a trip to the Zoo today, but sadly that has been postponed due to a broken car. =( Oh well, hopefully I'll be able to do that next week.
I'm very eager to try to photograph some zoo animals, although I have no idea how "photographer friendly" the zoo is.  


Also, I realized it has now been a little over a year since I joined dA.
I have over 10 000 pageviews and 207 watchers. :aww: It makes me very happy and I want to say thank you to all of you! :iconlovecuddleplz:
I'm thinking about maybe doing some kind of thank you feature for my watchers but that remains to be seen.

I think I've improved as a photographer over the year quite a lot, at least I've learned a lot! But I still consider myself a complete beginner. =)
What do you think, has my photos gotten any better? :D

Have a great end of summer!

Yeah hoping the weather is still good too, this week has been perfect. :D
And I hope the zoo is nice, I haven't visited it since I was just a kid and I've heard some bad things of it. :shrug:

Don't want to support a bad zoo.
