Tamron’s ‘It’s a Wild World’ Contest Gallery & Tamron’s Pro Learning Center

Tamron USA, Inc. recently announced the winners of their “It’s a Wild World” photo contest. The Grand Prize winning image, “The Curious Turtle” was shot by John Beveridge of Austin, Texas: “Getting this ant’s-eye view of the turtle wasn’t easy,” notes Beveridge. “I’m sure I must have looked slightly ridiculous wiggling around in a patch of dirt on the side of the highway as I followed this cute critter with my Canon EOS 20D fitted with a Tamron SP 28-75mm f/2.8 Di lens. Finally I got the composition I wanted when the turtle craned his neck and peered at me, and I shot the winning picture at about 70mm at f/5.6 at 1/200 sec.”

Mr. Beveridge received a Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II Aspherical (IF) Macro zoom lens and will have his winning picture showcased in Tamron’s Viewfinder newsletter and in the Gallery section Tamron’s website.
