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.

I did this shot while setting up and testing studio lights for a shoot next week of all kinds of splashes.  Four Nikon SB-900 flash units were used -- two lighting the splash and two lighting the background.  The reason I used the Nikon flash units instead of my studio Elinchrome units is flash duration.  Most camera flash units have a much faster duration of flash than studio strobes, and the faster Nikon units were needed to freeze the action.  Using two units instead of one on the background meant that each could be used at lower power where the flash duration is even faster.  I wanted to shoot at f/16 on the Nikon 24-70mm lens for maximum depth of field.
