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.

The supermoon of last Saturday was not visible in New York due to the overcast weather, but the moon was still very large and bright the day before and after. Because it was 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal it was a good opportunity to pick up some high resolution still images of it.  This photo was taken with a Nikon D800 in DX mode and the equivalent of a 1200mm lens (400mm lens with 2x telextender and 1.5x DX multiplier effect).  The extra 30% brightness allowed for a higher than normal shutter speed.  The moon is constantly moving and when you add in the motion multiplier of the long telephoto, you want to have the highest shutter speed you can manage while keeping the ISO at a reasonable rate.
