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.

I wanted to set up a situation of tension where both the viewer and the model know something is about to happen and are caught up in the anticipation of the outcome.

Here the question is about what will happen when the clock hits 5:00.  Will the worker be relieved because it is quitting time, or will she have to continue her work over-time?  Photographed with a ring light to give a hard graphic look.

The models eyes are riveted to the match.  It is decision time.  Will she ignite the full pack of matches and cause havoc, or won't she.  Shot with a 105mm Nikkor lens wide open for selective focus.  Even out-of-focus, the models eyes and their proximity to the lit match tell the story.
