In the ever heated debate of Tamron vs. Sigma vs. Nikon/Canon, a new competitor has arrived. Tamron has released an update of their popular 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Ever since Tamron began to create the new SP series lenses, starting with the 45mm, 35mm, and 15-30mm lenses, they’ve been hitting home runs. Having extensively used the 45mm f/1.8 SP lens, and doing a few shoots with their other new lenses, I had high hopes for the new Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2.
Last year I attended Midburn, a regional burning man event taking place in the hot Israeli desert.
I filmed nonstop for five days and created “We are Midburn”. The video ended up getting featured multiple big websites and news outlets, including the official Burning Man newsletter. Creating the video was quite the journey, but it also required me to extensively film non-stop during the entire event. So I pretty much experienced everything through a dusty camera lens.
When it was time to get ready for Midburn 2017, I decided I’ll hold off the video this year. I wanted to be more present in the event, and it wasn’t possible if I was to create a video. But I did have an idea to try something that has intrigued me for quite a while, and this year’s Midburn “Lucid Dream” theme was the perfect setting.
