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 spotted these old law books sitting on a shelf in our studio prop room and decided to use them for a blog shot.

To create the warm color two tungsten lights were used  --  one on each side of the books.  By narrowing the barn doors on the lights the light was kept very direction with soft shadows.

All images were photographed with the Nikon D3x.  For this image the aperture was f/22 for maximum depth of field.  The rest of the photos were shot around f/5.6 to keep the background a little soft.
