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.

It all started with the light.  I had an Idea for photographing a retro microphone using one tungsten light and a red gel.  Once I had set up for this shot, I thought of adding other objects into the same lighting situation.  Here are a few of the results.

I call this type of shooting "amortizing the setup", where once I have a light I like, I reel through it with a number of concepts that maximize the stock output from the effort.  I ended up with fourteen photos from this one situation.

This was the original photo I intended to take for the blog.

The light reminded me of an emergency so I photographed a stethoscope in the setup.

Next I added this movie countdown clip, and afterwards also photographed a microscope, some forks, a red wine glass, and glass globes.
