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.

In this images I was striving for a concept of riveted attention.  To achieve this I envisioned a pinpoint focus on the pupil of the eye with a plane of focus picking up some of the eye lashes and the glasses, while everything else was out of focus.  Coming in this close with the Nikon 105 macro, even at f/5.6 the depth-of-field was extremely shallow.  Shooting from the side instead of straight on emphasized the shallow focus and rendered the right-side background completely soft.
