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.

Photographing the late colors of winter is something I do every year.  The colors are muted and very subtle, and the plants are clinging to the last vestiges of life.  Instead of choosing a super high res camera for this series I used the Nikon D7000 with a 40mm macro lens at wide open aperture.  The "grain" structure of the D7000 is reminiscent of shooting with film.  That and the very narrow focus of the wide open aperture enhanced the fragile vulnerability of the subjects.
