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 was my last photo -- literally -- taken in the Joshua Tree NP of Joshua trees against a starry sky.  It was taken with the Nikon D800, a 16mm focal length at f/5.6 and 13seconds.  The lighting on the foreground tree was done by waving the beam from a flashlight all over the parts of the tree where I wanted detail.  In this situation, the camera was set to aperture-priority mode but set to over-expose by 3-stops to bring more light into the night sky. There was a bright moon overhead, which usually makes shooting stars very difficult.  Here it added some light to the clouds and made the night sky look more natural.
