I put the new lens to the first this yesterday but I don't think it was a legit test since I made errors. I also ordered the Tamron Tap-in console and should be here for Friday as I want to tune the lens with (I do this with all my lenses as I want the best out of it with no back or front focus issues). My lens is slightly off but tuning it will get it perfect.
Shooting indoors is not easy! Shooting mini's is not easy.
I'm not at all surprised but it's a very valuable learning experience for me moving forward. Shooting indoors gives you so many more obstacles to deal with especially when you have inconsistent lighting, hot spots, reflections, not a great choice of backdrops, too many random items in the back, tight framing, etc.
Also shooting mini's is a lot more difficult than I thought especially when they are black with shiny white manes and wear black patches over their eyes with black shiny tack.
