Orchid #4

Orchid #4

Last orchid pic for a little while.  This is the same orchid from Orchid  #1, Orchid #2, and Orchid #3.  The Orchid 2-4 posts were all taken the same day.  Orchid #1 was taken a few weeks ago.

Taken at the University of Michigan’s Matthei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Nikon D80, Nikkor 50mm, f/2, 1/250 sec, ISO 200.

Incidentally, the setup for these orchid shots was super simple.  The light and dark backgrounds in previous photos are simply a sheet of white and black construction paper that I manually held behind the orchid.  The camera was mounted on a tripod, and I leaned back to press the shutter button with my free hand (accidentally left my wireless “remote control” shutter release at home).
