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 is the blueberry pie my daughter, Jamie, made me for Father's Day. This is how it looked on Jamie's blog as it was being made: a life of whimsy.|
|This is the same pie shortly after I brought it into the studio the next day.|

While photographing in England recently, I befriended a couple who were serious about photography and asked me for some help on getting the most from a travel subject. One thing I pointed out to them was that while there were literally thousands of tourists a day passing by the same spot where they were standing, the only thing that changed daily was the weather. I showed them that by incorporating the weather into their photographs, they could make the images particularly their own. This is especially true of interesting cloud formations. Here is a blog post I did on my Learn Photography blog site that illustrates this point more in detail.
Yesterday evening in New York I was treated to these interesting, multi-layered cloud formations that reminded me of this story.

|The number 3 was part of 1873 written across the building for the date this building was constructed. It was originally the home of Brooks Brothers in New York.|
|I always wonder what the architect would feel if he could see his beautiful facade covered over by the later, intrusive addition of a fire escape.|
|The Cable Building sits on the corner of Houston and Broadway. Designed by McKim, Mead, & White and built in 1894 it originally housed a large power plant in its basement for the Broadway cable car line.|
|I liked the way the bright red brick of this building at 20 Astor Place contrasted with the blue of the sky.|

|I placed two large and very shiny reflectors behind the model to serve as a partial background and positioned them to pick up the hot mid-day sun, and reflect it past the model's face and directly into the camera lens|
