Commack, NY—Tamron USA Inc. launched its 2015 eBook series, with the first installation available for free download at tamron-usa.com/lenses/ebooks.php. Expansive photographs serve as the visual backdrop for each 12-page-plus eBook, accompanied by descriptive commentary and hands-on techniques and tips for each book’s specific photographic theme, genre or location.
Featured eBook authors are members of Tamron’s Tech Team, a highly skilled group of photographers, educators and experts in Tamron lenses and lens technology. Tamron’s eBook authors hone their craft behind the lens every day and then share that photography expertise with beginners, serious amateurs and professionals across the country through visits to dealers, schools, camera clubs and photography shows.
First in the 2015 eBook series is Road Trip Across the Southwest, a pictorial journey with photographer Ken Hubbard through the mountains, tufa towers and slot canyons of the American Southwest. In this edition, Hubbard and fellow Tech Team colleague André Costantini take the Tamron Tailgate Tour van on a side trip to test-drive the new Tamron SP 15–30mm f/2.8 Di VC lens—the first f/2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with image stabilization.
The second eBook, Sports Photography: A Guide to Camera Setup and Exposure, with Tamron pro photographer Jillian Bell, is also posted, as is Seattle in a Day, with photographs by Patrick Nagel using four full-frame Tamron lenses. Three more eBooks are in the works and will be posted by September.
The 2015 eBooks are companion pieces to the eBooks already available at tamron-usa.com/lenses/ebooks.php, including Close-Up Photography by Jillian Bell; Nighttime Photography by Jeff Allen; Sunrise/Sunset Photography by Rob Moody; Travel & Landscape Photography by Ken Hubbard; and Natural-Light Photography by André Costantini. tamron-usa.com
