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.

Here is another instance of using the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye as a close-up lens.  These photos were taken in the local farmer's market.  The lens, which can focus as close as 5.51" (14cm), was placed very close to the fruit.

The fisheye effect can be corrected in varying degrees, from full to partial correction,  in Photoshop.  In this photo there is about 80% correction, whereas the photo below of the tomatoes received much less correction and maintains more of the fisheye "rounding".
A Nikon D7000 was used for all the images.  The lens was so close to the subject that it was sometimes difficult to avoid the shadow of the camera in the shot.
