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.

While walking past Gramercy Park in NYC I found these colorful autumn leaves that had blown onto the sidewalk and brought them home to photograph.

I began shooting with the Nikon D7000 and 40mm macro but switched to the D700 and 60mm macro because I knew the image quality would be higher.  The photos were taken with an aperture around f/10 to obtain a deep focus in the softly filtered window light.

A silver cardboard reflector kicked some direct sunlight onto the leaf for a more dramatic, sculptural effect.  I will probably continue shooting autumn variations while the colorful leaves remain available.
