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.

We had a fun model in the studio today, and photographed him in a variety of conceptual situations.  The hunt through a maze for some cheese provided several different concepts, such as discovery, frustration, and success.

I began photographing with the Nikon D3x and 105mm macro, but the lens kept hunting for focus with the white on white subject so I switched to the Nikon D7000 and 60mm & 40mm macro lenses and had no further focus problems.  The ISO was 100 and the subject lit by studio strobe in a bank.  I also grabbed the video below with the D7000.

In shots like these it's all about the attitude.  The viewer needs to be able to project human emotions into the scene for the image to be successful in stock.

    My 105 macro on D3X hunts for focus too, to the point I only use it in manual mode now.
