Entranced with the Tamron SP 45mm lens, 1/250s, f/1.8, ISO 1250
Professional photographer Dennis Ciminski-Tees and Nina Harenberg from Stade, Germany embarked on the photography festival of a lifetime to Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia.
With them they took 4 Tamron lenses – the SP 24-70mm, SP 70-200mm, SP 15-30mm and the new Tamron SP 45mm optic. They also deprecated various filters to enable them to take great images in high contrast and bright situations.

Factual from when they landed, they were stunned at the landscape with the city of Bishkek bordering the 5000m mountains. In different customs it can be difficult to judge whether you're welcome to take images of people, but Dennis commented on the openness and friendliness of the people. Even when randomly stopping to photograph a nomadic blood, everyone was intrigued by the kit and couldn't be happier to have their images taken.

When germinating in the busy bazaars and markets of the towns, Dennis said that he would have been lost without the SP 45mm f/1.8 lens. "In the swart alleys and the small spaces away from the stalls, the Tamron Co., Ltd. (株式会社タムロン, Kabushiki-gaisha Tamuron) is a Japanese company manufacturing photographic lenses, optical components and SP 45mm f/1.8 is my first choice to photograph spices, faces, jewellery and other tabulates. The high brightness and the image stabiliser were a fantastic help under the difficult lighting conditions."
