Tribeca - A Vertical Slice

From an eighth floor perspective, a 200mm view into an urban canyon of old brick, new windows...and fire escapes. Tribeca, Manhattan, NYC. Shot on Kodak Ektar-100 film in a Canon EOS-630 through my Tamron 28-200mm LD AF lens. ©Steve Ember
Locust Point Nightscape No.1

Locust Point Nightscape No.1

Bulk Carrier Laser Ace (Registry Panama) is tied up at the Domino Sugar refinery in Baltimore’s Locust Point on this clear September night. The tele-compressed view looking past her bow includes the Legg Mason Tower across the harbor in the city’s Harbor East development. Shot through my Tamron SP 60-300mm manual focus lens mounted to Canon EOS-40D via Adaptall-2 to EOS adapter. The lens was at its widest setting, for a 35mm equivalent of 96mm. ©2016 Steve Ember
South Baltimore Sunset

South Baltimore Sunset

Ravens Stadium provides a violet hued counterpoint to the warm post sunset colors at the end of this late summer day. My Tamron SP 60-300mm manual focus zoom lens, set to its longest focal length on my Canon EOS-40D, for a 35mm equivalent of 480mm, allowed me to capture the South Baltimore mix of residential and commercial areas that exist cheek-by-jowl with railroad tracks serving as a gleaming and serpentine artery. Speaking of “artries,” if you look carefully you can also see a signage tower for one of the highways leading into the city. ©2016 Steve Ember
Lots of Grunt, Lots of Rumble-Grumble

Lots of Grunt, Lots of Rumble-Grumble

In this South Baltimore setting, a long lash-up of CSX diesels is all that is seen of a very long train switching cars in Locust Point. As it became apparent the train was about as "close" to me as its moves were going to allow, I was happy to have my Tamron SP 60-300mm manual focus lens in my pack. Coupled to my Canon EOS-40D, it provided the 35mm equivalent of 480mm for just the effect I was looking for. ©2016 Steve Ember
Severn-Scape - Naval Academy Bridge

Severn-Scape - Naval Academy Bridge

Here in "The Land of Pleasant Living" along the Severn River, a day of shooting ends in the serenity of a Severn sunset, enhanced by al fresco dining at The Severn Inn with a ready camera close at hand. Tamron 28-200mm LD AF lens on my Canon EOS-40D. ©2016 Steve Ember
Ahhh!

Ahhh!

Yes, I still love film for some of my shooting... I suppose it’s oddly appropriate that, while the photo was shot digitally, it was done through some nice, solid film-era glass, my newly acquired Tamron SP-Series 60-300 mm manual focus lens, used in its macro range and mounted to my EOS-40D via a Tamron Adaptall-2 EOS mount. Can you tell I love living in both worlds? ©2016 Steve Ember

South Street Seaport, Lower Manhattan, NYC, on a brilliant early summer afternoon. Shot on Kodak Ektar-100 film in a Canon EOS-630 through my Tamron 28-200mm LD AF lens. ©Steve Ember

Altstadt Rooftops, Innsbrück

Altstadt Rooftops, Innsbrück

The rain and mist of this September afternoon in Innsbruck dashed any hopes of seeing the surrounding Alps in their majesty on this first visit. Nonetheless, from the belfry of the Stadtturm in the Altstadt, the combination of vividly colored rain-shiny and rough-hewn textures of the rooftops below were an appealing motif from my perch 51 meters above the narrow cobblestone Gassen. Shot on Agfachrome-100 in a Nikon FE2 through my Tamron SP 24-48mm manual focus wide angle zoom at its widest setting. ©Steve Ember
Heading Home - A Tide Point Moment

Heading Home - A Tide Point Moment

Tide Point, in South Baltimore's Locust Point district, is a fascinating area in which harbor views, residential neighborhoods, and industrial areas successfully co-exist to form an inviting urban mosaic. The woman and her baby are headed home after spending time along the promenade overlooking Baltimore's Inner Harbor. I loved the strong tele-compression my trusty Tamron SP 60-300mm manual focus lens at its longest setting afforded on my Canon EOS-40D. The (35mm equivalent) 480mm view seemed just right for illustrating the above-described nature of the neighborhood. ©2016 Steve Ember
Daddy, I Think the Sea Gulls are Hungry

Daddy, I Think the Sea Gulls are Hungry

The gulls are happy campers along the Tide Point Promenade overlooking Baltimore's Inner Harbor, knowing the man and his daughter are about to take care of their culinary desires. Tamron SP 60-300 manual focus lens on my Canon EOS-40D. ©2016 Steve Ember
Twilight Calm - a Severn Moment

Twilight Calm - a Severn Moment

Around here, they call it "The Land of Pleasant Living." An inviting late day sky and calm waters lapping along the shore of the Severn River along Annapolis' Broad Neck Peninsula make for a happy end to a day of shooting. Captured through my Tamron 28-200mm LD AF lens at 130mm on my Canon EOS-40D, for a 35mm equivalent focal length of a bit over 200mm. ©2016 Steve Ember
Susquehanna Springtime

Susquehanna Springtime

Spring brings its inviting pastel palette to trees along the Susquehanna River at Port Deposit in northern Maryland. Shot on Kodak Ektar-100 film in a Canon EOS-630 through my Tamron 28-200mm LD AF zoom lens at its longest setting. ©Steve Ember

Travels with my Tamrons - Color

by EmberPhotos-1

More Travels with my Tamrons, this time in color. The images include some of my first matings of my Tamron SP 60-300mm manual focus zoom with my APS-sensor D-SLR for some cityscapes with strong tele-compression. Hope you enjoy the results as much as I did the shooting. New York, Baltimore, Chesapeake Bay region, and a rainy but colorful day in Innsbrück, Austria.
