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.

Yesterday the stock market was closed for a holiday and we were fortunate enough to have access to photograph in a stock trading office that was empty and available for the day.  We went with four models and reeled them through numerous situations.  Here are just a few of the hundred or so images we obtained.

All the computer screens were blank so we have to add them later in Photoshop.  We had visited this location at an earlier date and photographed trading screens created for us to use for this purpose.

Mostly I was able to shoot available light with IS0 ranges of 400-1600 on a Nikon D3s, which I find to be the best camera for this type of shooting situation.

In a shooting such as this it is all about the animation in the model's faces.  They need to have their attention riveted to their screens and appear -- with both body language and expression --  to be in the midst of active involvement in the fast-paced, high-pressure trading environment.
