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.

We just did a two day shoot in a restaurant, primarily in the kitchen where this photo was taken.  I am not counting the photo in the blog project because it was part of my normal stock shooting work flow. The kitchen was lit with four Nikon SB-900 flash units mixed with some of the tungsten ambient lights.  To have the burner flame record, I opened the Nikon 24-70mm lens to f/2.8, and set the shutter speed on the D3s to 1/30sec.  ISO was set at only 200.  I like working fairly wide open in situations like this because the shallow depth of field lends more of a believability factor the the shot.
This photo, however, is part of the project because it was not part of the shooting plan.  I spotted this beer tap at one of the bars in the restaurant and decided to take a pouring shot while waiting for the models to get ready.  There was some daylight in the room.  I augmented it with three Nikon SB-900 flash units, and shot wide open with the Nikon 85mm F/1.4 lens on a D3s.
