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.

Today was lightly overcast. -- not good for photographing the beach, but perfect for photographing in a tropical forest.  So I concentrated on tropical themes for most of the day.  Generally I was striving for a lush, green feel to the images.
I shot primarily with the Nikon D700 and both the 24-70mm zoom and 16-35mm zoom on a tripod at ISO 200 and an aperture around f/8.  A polarizing filter was necessary to cut though the reflections on the leaves and bring out their true color.  In the bottom photo with a waterfall in the background I also needed a Neutral Density filter to reduce the shutter speed to 1/2sec so it would blur the falling water.  The moisture on the leaves was added by a spray bottle of water I carry with me for situations such as this.
