I bought this Lady's Slipper Orchid from a vendor at the Botanic Garden's annual Orchid Show, took it home, and set it up on the dining room table with a black velvet background and the camera on a tripod. Using a poor man's photo studio is a lot easier than trying to find a good subject in the wild.
