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 white linen napkin helps separate the antique corkscrew from the wood background and also results in a more interesting composition that echoes and accentuates the strong vertical framing.  Shot by window light with the Nikon D7000 and a 35mm f/2 Nikkor lens set to f/8 for increased depth of field.  This lens focuses down to a little over 9", and on the smaller sensor of a DX camera becomes a handy close-up tool for still life.  That and the fast f/2 maximum aperture makes this lens a regular addition to my travel camera kit.
