Your perspective can never be too wide. Hang around any photographer long enough, and you’ll hear this phrase come up. I agree; there’s something incredible about an ultra-wide perspective, especially when photographing big, bold landscapes. At 16mm on the wide end, the new Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO is an exceptionally wide lens, with wide-angle performance that matches some of the finest dedicated fixed focal length lenses I’ve ever worked with. But for me to be fully convinced about a lens’s capabilities in the field, I need to see how it performs when pushed into panorama territory. I love shooting multiple wide-angle images of a scene and then stitching them together to create one massive frame, so I took my new Tamron on a training exercise at the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. It passed with flying colors. This is a panoramic image created from three separate vertical frames, shot one after the other, at the Devil’s Canyon Overlook, where 1,000-foot drops, Bighorn sheep, mountain goat, and ferocious cougars are the order of the day. Usually, I’d do this sort of thing with a tripod, but thanks to Tamron’s Vibration Compensation technology, I was able to create this–and a half dozen other panos–quickly and efficiently. I shot each of the images at 16mm, and love how I have sharpness from corner to corner, and virtually no distortion anywhere. The versatility of this lens has opened up whole new avenues of run-and-gun travel creativity.
