Macro with long lenses

by Arie October. 27, 2009 4936 views

The last time when I first decided to get one long lens i.e. 70-300mm (telephoto lens), I was told by some friends that “long lenses are not for everyone.”

It is true… it took me a few days/weeks to get used to it. I often experience camera shake and focusing inaccuracy that lead to results far below my expectations.

Practice make perfect! Yes… I shoot anything, everything almost everyday from the first day I got the 70-300mm lens. And now… after using it over time, I may only say I like it even more than I originally did ;-)

The above subjects are only a few samples. I've taken many shots before and already posted them in the previous thread.

Awesome!! Your super sharp shots show that it CAN be done with a long lens!! Were you using a tripod for these?

great, great shots. well done!
i have a tamron 70-300mm too for my alpha 300. however i seldom use it except for portraits (for its wonderful bokeh). have yet to get acquainted with its use for macros.
your shots here inspired me to use my tamron more often.
thanks for sharing.

Glad to see your shots..they are so sharp and well composed. I recently got a 70-300 mm lens and still trying to get to used to it (I hope I am not one of those people for whom long lenses are not meant for)
