Tamron and ViewBug Showcase the Art of Macro Photography

Tamron and ViewBug have partnered to run a magnified photography contest.

Tamron, a global manufacturer of optical equipment that offers premium-quality products for many different industries, and San Diego-based ViewBug, the number one online photo contest community that provides awesome opportunities for photographers, have partnered to run a magnified photography contest. Magnified or macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of small objects where the subject looks larger than life size. Macro photography is very popular and is achieved thanks to the great technology behind lenses such as the Tamron collection. The photo contest will award one juried grand prize winner the new Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD 11 Macro lens valued at $749 and one people's choice winner a year of a ViewBug Premium membership valued at $59 USD.

The photo contest offers a high quality judge, Evelyn S. Lamprey. Evelyn is a full-time commercial photographer specializing in product photography, particularly textile, fiber and other craft. Personal work focuses on New England landscapes and still life. Submissions are open until July 3rd, 2013. ''We are excited to be running a magnified photography contest in partnership with the best lenses manufacturers. Tamron offers a great variety of products that help photographers achieve the perfect shot,'' commented Jimmy Lozowsky, president of ViewBug, ''We are thrilled to see the quality of the submissions''

''Viewbug provides photographers with an excellent platform to show off their photographic skills,'' stated Stacie Errera, Chief Marketing Officer for Tamron USA. ''We are excited to see the entries from the Viewbug community as they explore the beautiful world of macro photography.''
