My Plant Photography (continued)

I promise that I will get back to orchids tomorrow. I was surprised how much this caused me a problem, mentally mostly. I had a comfortable setup. One camera on the tripod for indoors, the other for everything else.

Bulbophyllum Wilbur Chang - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI am getting this worked out. This is a picture that will become the catalog photo for this plant. It is my normal setup with flash. I was afraid that the flash would cast a harsh shadow, but I can hardly see it. I am still working through the post processing. It is becoming quicker and more mechanical and that how I want it.

The new lens has yet to arrive. I hope it will give that last increment of quality improvement and I can be happy with the pictures.


  1. Richard,

    Good luck with the orchid photography. It's an addiction; take it from one who knows. If you haven't seen it, take a look at the orchid photography piece from B&H as it's a good start:

    Incidentally, the Bulb. facetum you sent my way bloomed and was set for a second bloom, but it blasted. It's a very attractive flower with interesting behavior.

    Again my thanks, and keep up the Great Blog!
