As a photography maniac, I am very privileged to have become a professional photographer. During my high school days, photography has yet to gain popularity in my country. Whenever I picked up my camera, I would be overwhelmed by a sense of contentment — one that i conquered the world. Ever since then, I never looked back.
Fast forward to recent years, I became a photography lecturer in college, published photography collections, and became a Tamron Lens ambassador of Malaysia. Many amateurs and renowned photographers have since displayed their interests in joining me on shoots after browsing through my portfolio.
In every milestone of my life, Tamron Lens played a vital, indispensable role. These occasions include: during my teaching days in college, in my photography publications and award-winning photos, as well as the regular photo submissions as a Tamron Lens ambassador. Undoubtedly, I possess a deep understanding of the Tamron Lenses and it has never once failed me.
Therefore, when I first laid my hands on the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028), you can hardly imagine how excited I was. It is the world’s first ultra-telephoto all-in-one zoom lens for the APS-C format DSLR cameras! I am deeply honoured to be able to participate and witness such a breakthrough in the evolution of camera lenses.
Setting off to Bali, I immediately felt the weight difference in my camera apparels and my luggage was also significantly lighter. Bringing the 18-400mm lens along allowed me to capture a wide diversity of images, all of which brought about an unexpected myriad of sensations. Needless to say, B028 was the best ‘travel mate’ I could ever ask for. The entire shooting process was an enjoyable and relaxing one as B028 lenses handled every focal length with ease and precision, without any restrictions.
Last but not least, I have to emphasise on the 400mm focal length. It was superb to shoot with B028 on the beach for surfing activities. Even though beaches have been a common subject matter, it is definitely not an easy shooting location. B028 has not only greatly reduced the weight burden on the photographer, it has also demonstrated exemplary precision and accuracy. One cannot help but be in awe and rejoice at the breathtaking images captured.
As the photographer shooting sample photos for B028, I sincerely rejoice over it.
