This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

One of my favorite ways of shooting macro subjects is to use an unusual lens with an extension tube.  This shot was taken with a 400mm Nikkor lens in a studio setup.  Notice the difference in the squashed perspective between this image and the one below.
On this variation I used a 135mm f/2 defocus Nikkor wide open to achieve a tight perspective and distinct bokeh in the out-of-focus lights in the background.  I also added the cell phone and lipstick smudge on the glass to convert the shot into more of a lifestyle situation.
