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.

Shooting with a back lit sun is one of my favorite lighting techniques.  It works particularly well on autumn scenes to bring out the vibrant colors in leaves.  All photos were taken with a Nikon D600 -- the two wide scenes with a 24-120mm zoom and the close-up of yellow maple leaves with the Sigma 50mm macro lens wide open for a shallow depth of field.

  1. Gorgeous photography !!!!
    This is nice blog and beautiful shot .To get the optimum look out of your photographs you need to avoid using the camera's flash if you really need a flash you need to get an off-camera flash so that it does not reflect on your pet's eyes directly. Try and use natural light instead and avoid direct sunlight whenever or wherever possible.
