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 like working with the sun to create strong silhouettes.  They work well as key shots for graphic design uses in advertising -- simple but effective..

The top image of the fort outline was done with the Nikon D700 and 24-70mm zoom, while the image above of the cross was shot with the Leica M9 and 50mm lens setting of a tri-elmar.  In both cases the lenses were stopped down to around f/11 to accentuate the start burst effect of the sun.
