these pictures were taken with the tamron 70-300mm and it is a really bad lense to work with, the chromatic abberation is literal cancer and fucks up pretty much every background.
It was a pain in the arse at some points, but fun at the same time, to force yourself, to keep working with whatever you get.
It might be just me who believes that starting with a really cheap DSLR like my rusty Nikon D80 is a fantastic way to learn your gear.
Like my whole setup (2 lenses, 1 camera, 2 tripods) are not even worth 300 bucks.
I've seen an 18y old kid in my area with a Nikon d750 + a couple of really expencive lenses, who takes fucking horrible photos. His starting camera was a goddamn nikon d750
His Instagram account is "mrmanox"
I'm normally not the person who bullies photographers for their bad pictures, but it shows how fucked up a big part of the community is
