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.

For this shot, I wanted just the lips to be in focus and saturated, while everything else would be soft and bright.

Here is another version where I wanted both the eye and lips in focus -- everything else soft.  I used the 135mm Defocus Nikkor, an f/2 lens, wide open.  This lens has the softest bokeh of any lens I know, plus it is extremely sharp where it is focused.  The depth of field was so shallow that I had to put both the eye and lips on the same plane as the camera sensor to keep them in focus.  Camera was the Nikon D3s at ISO 200 with available window light.
