Workshop Demonstration
Orchids require the right temperature, light, and humidity. Other than that, they are quite hardy. When I photographed the orchids in the university green house, I was advised the orchid room would fill with mist every fifteen minutes. I asked the "keeper of orchids" who has photographed orchids in exotic places all over the world, if he would give me his best photography hint. "Remove the camera from the room when the mist comes," he said. Good advice. For visual texture, I used "separating colors" in the leaves for a granulated look. In the orchid petals are subtle lines made by using water.
