Cheap Photo: Tamron SP 45mm F1.8 VC is only $399

Tamron’s SP 45mm F1.8 VC is one of our favorite prime lenses for Canon and Nikon shooters right now. It is a nice focal length for those who like a little more width than a 50mm, but need more reach than a 35mm can provide. It also happens to be a great deal right now over on Amazon – just $399. Really, if you are in the market for a nice prime lens to replace your 35mm and 50mm, the Tamron 45mm SP is an excellent choice.

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Yellow Fields and Hills” by Clayton Peoples. Location: Carrizo Plain National Monument, California.

“In 2017, Carrizo Plain National Monument experienced a ‘superbloom’ of epic proportions: flowers covered the plain, the hills and the mountainsides in rich yellow, orange and purple colors. In this particular photo, I tried to ensure that yellow dominated the scene. The yellow flowers in the foreground lead up to hillsides and mountains splashed in predominantly yellow. It was an unforgettable bloom.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsGalleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, FacebookTwitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.

Lowepro finally releases a 4 wheeled carry-on roller case – The PhotoStream SP 200

  Roller cases aren’t something I use very often. They’re just not practical for most of the locations at which I shoot (rocky, rough ground around rivers, lakes, etc). But sometimes they’re absolutely the best tool for the job. Last week, for example, DIYP covered The Photography Show. And on an exhibition hall floor, a […]
