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.

This is a super-imposed image using one of the fireworks photos from the blog on July 4th and a flag shot I have in my archives.  I removed the sky background from the original flag image and placed the flag over the fireworks, then massaged the whole thing in Photoshop.  To obtain the bleed-through of the fireworks in some parts of the flag I first made a duplicate layer of the flag.  I changed the bottom flag layer to "screen" mode, which allowed the fireworks to bleed completely through the flag.  Next I put a layer mask on the upper, "normal" flag layer and selectively painted out the areas where I wanted fireworks to show through.
