ORCHID, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, MARCH 5, 2016
Pentax 35mm f2.4
1 sec. f22
I bought this orchid at a local florist just for the purpose of taking it home and photographing it on the dinner table with a black velvet background. Lighting came from the big windows a few feet from the table. In my opinion, the best orchid photography is done in the studio where conditions can be carefully controlled.
