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 one is a bit bizarre. I had just finished shooting a scene with this model when I spotted a clear blue bottle of window cleaner on a table. Grabbing it, I asked the model to pose for a few seconds, then, placing the bottle in front of the left side of the lens I took this photo. It helped that I had the 135mm Nikkor defocus lens on my camera. Set at f/2 this lens produces the best bokeh of any lenses I've ever used. I also love the twin streaks coming in from the upper left and converging to complete a powerful compositional line of direction taking your eye to the model's hand, which tells the story or here attitude.
