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.

The idea for this image came to me on my recent trip where all beer was served with a lime.  I tried to grab an available light shot at the time but realized that I would have better results if I saved the shot idea to do in my studio when I returned.  In the studio I have better control over the styling of the bubbles, the lime,  and dripping water on the bottle.  I used my favorite close-up lens combo, the 135mm defocus Nikkor with a short extension-tube, so I could shoot very wide open at f/2.2 to achieve the exaggerated bokeh blurs in the out-of-focus background.
