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.

First buds of spring

Yesterday while walking into our studio I noticed that some spring buds were just beginning to sprout on the trees outside our building.  This morning the tiny buds had come alive, and some had already blossomed.  I always photograph the first spring buds I see so I went to the studio and grabbed a Nikon D3s with a 105mm macro lens on it.  Here are two of the many shots I did.

I wanted the delicate colors of the plants to dominate the shots so I positioned myself to have out-of-focus neutral gray tones created in the background by the wide open aperture of the lens.
