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 importance of clouds

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.
