If you're relatively new to the world of photography, manual camera settings may seem like an impenetrable mystery.
If you're new to photography, here's a brief recap for you: The proper pronunciation of ISO has been quite a debate in the industry for several years. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but you have your diehards on both sides

From tight beauty shots, to wide portraits that showcase the entire scene—you can capture it all with the Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD for Sony. This fast-aperture zoom lens is ideal for creating portraits on the go when you don’t necessarily have the means or time to be switching back and forth between lenses.
