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.

The Nikon macro lenses deliver a close-up magnification ratio of 1:1.  I wanted to come even closer so you could clearly read the credit card numbers reflected in the tip of the pen.   Adding a 4+ close-up filter onto the front of the Nikon 60mm macro lens did the trick. Photographed by soft filtered window light on a Nikon D3x at f/5 gave just enough focus to keep the card numbers and pen point sharp while everything else was softly blurred.
