Simple orchid photography setup

I am not a photographer, I am an orchidist who takes pictures. I want the setup to be easy and I don't have any space that I can dedicate to photography. I take my pictures in the kitchen. The light is fair and I can end up with pretty good photos with a minimum of adjustment.

I have just made this PVC frame with a plywood shelf and I started using it today. My old setup was in the same location with the cloth trapped in the cabinet doors. Now I have both more height and more shelf depth.

This is the first picture, Vuylstekeara Stephen Isler. As you can see, the bottom of the cabinets would not have been tall enough to shoot this flower. Any of the Vuylstekeara hybrids make very fine indoor plants and the flowers are colorful.
