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.

Today's theme is sugar.  This first shot of sugar being poured from a spoon into a coffee cup was lit by one Nikon SB-900 flash off to the right and a little behind the subject.  A white reflector card was placed to the left to fill in the shadows.  The lens was a Nikon 105mm Macro at f/16.  All images were photographed with a Nikon D3x.

This photo of an assortment of sugar types was photographed with the 85mm Tilt-shift Nikkor at f/4.5.  I like working fairly wide open with lens.  Tilting it covers the important focus points, while the open aperture still maintains a soft focus in unimportant areas.

This is the same setup as the top photo, but the lighting here is a soft window light from the left with a bit of shadow fill from a silver card on the right. Photographed with the 105mm Micro Nikkor at f/22.
