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 idea for these shots came to me the other day after I had done the photos with the domino and chess pieces on an antique map.  I decided to create a stronger graphic with just one chess piece, the king, in a dramatic light.

Both photos were lit with a single LED flash light I hand held and moved around so the lighting would be softly blurred by the long exposure.  In the top image I focused on the chess piece, whereas in the bottom I focused on the map of Europe and allowed the chess piece to go out of focus.  The bottom theme was inspired by some of the drama that is currently playing out in the European financial crisis.
