[SOLD] [U.S.] Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro, FA 50 f1.4, Vivitar 28mm MC CF WA (K02),...

I'm putting all the lenses that I have on the marketplace into one post. No more trading. I'm looking to sale instead. I need money to buy the FA 31 ltd and FA 77 ltd

Tamron SP AF 90mm DI macro PRICE: $400(sold)
I bought this lens new this past November to satisfy my crave for macro shooting. The lens is in pristine condition. You will get it with everything that it came with.
Pictures taken with it
Yellow Flower | Daily Picture Project
Bubbles | Daily Picture Project
Constipated | Daily Picture Project
The Look | Daily Picture Project

The Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 PRICE: $250 (sold)
I'm the only owner of this lens. This lens is what made me fall in love with photography. It's used but in great conditions. No scratch, no fungus, or anything on the glasses and everything works fine. A few marks on the body. It comes with caps and box

The Vivitar 28mm f2.8 CF P/K mount (K02 version) PRICE: $135(sold)
This is the much coveted Vivitar 28mm K02 version from the Vivitar bestiary list. I bought it here on the forum from someone. As much as I don't want to let it go, I haven't used it that much to warrant keeping it. Beside, I'm getting the FA 31ltd. No scratch, no fungus, or anything on the glasses and everything work fine. A few marks on the body. It comes with caps and a generic hood.


Shipping:
only in the CONUS with USPS Priority Mail

Payment Method Paypal only

Return: N/A

Picture of lenses coming in the next post.Image of the lenses. For more image and info, feel free to ask me.

Viv 28

A quick bump with a price reduction on the FA 50. A few people have retracted their interest after I posted the picture of the scratch on the body of the lens. I'm not sure why but the body of a lens has nothing with the image it can take. The glasses are spotless...If you want a shiny brand new lens to babyseat, I'll suggest you buy a new one then. I guess I'm being too honest with ppl here.

What software/techniques do you use to make your Tamron 90 photos so beautiful and 3D?

They're not straight from the camera that way, are they?

I always have to boost my photos in many ways and have never found how to make them as gorgeous as some other users'.

Your Tamron sample photos really shine!!

Hey mate, thanks for the compliment. I use lightroom and photoshop to edit my pictures. You'll be surprise to know that I haven't done much to the pictures when it come to post processing. What made those 4 shots were the quality of the lens and the lightning.

Flower shot:
It was just a lucky shot. I bumped up the contrast in photoshop using Nik Color Efex.
Bubble shot: I used a strobe bounced on a sheet of aluminum. The bubble were formed on the back of a CD which created the color effect. No pp
Constipated shot: This one was all about getting the right focus on the face. I also used a strobe thru an umbrella. The shot was purposely taken overexposed. In photoshop, all I did was bump up the tonal contrast a bit w/ Color Efex to exaggerate the face features and convert to BW using Silver Efex.
The Look shot: The shot was pretty much made with the lighting: strobe thru umbrella and a reflector on the right. Photoshop: soften her face to get rid of some details and cloned a few blemish.

I hope that help.
