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.

Yes, one more of the eye glasses.  I decided to continue for a full week and this is the fourth day.  Three to go.  We had a model in the studio for a shoot today and I added this shot to the schedule.  Photographed up close with the Nikon D3s and 105mm Nikon macro lens with wide open aperture.  At this distance the depth-of-field is practically nil.  So getting in really close with a long lens and wide open aperture can be tricky.  I had to position the film plane of the camera to be parallel with both the iris of the eye and the rim of the glasses -- both important story-telling elements --  to keep both sharply focused.
