THIS SITE IS MOVING TO ANOTHER LOCATION:
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.

|This view was taken with the Nikon D700 and 24-70mm zoom just before the sun went down.|
This was the actual sunset behind the fort, photographed in two 35mm shots and combined into a panoramic later using photomerge in Photoshop CS5.

|I like working with the sun to create strong silhouettes. They work well as key shots for graphic design uses in advertising -- simple but effective..|

Arrived in San Juan but our room wasn't ready. We killed some time having lunch where I took these two shots with the Nikon D700 and 60mm macro. I shot wide open at f/2.8 because I like a shallow depth of field.
|I call shots like these "lifestle still-life" because they tend to tell a story of a person who left the objects as they are.|

With so much interest on the east and middle east today, it reminded me to do a few images using antique globes. Keeping the color palette muted and monochromatic enables the photos to be used primarily as background graphics.
While I was at it, I grabbed a number of other world vistas. The camera was a Nikon D7000 with a 35mm f/2 Nikkor used at f/2 for its softening effect.

|Now that the studio floors had been cleaned we were going to put everything back in the room. Before we did, I decided to add a few more conceptual themes to the empty space.|

|This image of a sea biscuit was shot similarly to the one above, but the color was enhanced in Photoshop.|

|A package arrived today with a large bar code on it. I photographed it with a 60mm macro on my Nikon D700 and added the red laser stripe in Photoshop.|

|I switched to a 135mm defocus Nikkor lens here to provide a very shallow depth-of-field, a compressed perspective, and a more casual, lifestyle look to the situation.|

|Probably not the kind of subject you want to be shooting when you are on a diet -- the donuts in this image were photographed separately and assembled later to make one photo illustrating diversity.|
|This stack of donuts was photographed with a ring light attachment on a Nikon SB-900 flash to create a crisp, colorful graphic.|
