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.

This past week the trees in New York sprouted their spring leaves, and the last of the blossoms were in full color.  I photographed this street-side tree against the sun with a Leica M9 and 90mm Elmarit at f/2.8.

The format you use for a stock photo can suggest a usage to the designer.  Cropping the image long and narrow suggests use as a banner.  In both images I kept the background very soft to allow for overlay of type.
