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).
