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.

When I first saw this little girl, her big brown eyes and braids reminded me of someone from the American Prairie.  To emphasize the eyes I used a very shallow depth of field with a 135mm defocus Nikkor lens set at f/2.

For this image with the shell I wanted a warmer color reminescent of sunset on a beach.  I placed a tungsten light behind her and allowed it to flare into the lens.
A soft window light gave this image its slightly cooler color.  Only the eggs in the nest are in focus as, once again, I used the 135mm defocus Nikkor set to f/2 on the Nikon D3s.  In Photoshop I darkened the area around the eggs to make them stand out even more.
