Actually I shot the orchid in my kitchen with a wooden chair, a black nylon windbreaker over the back, the flower on the seat and a flashlight from my truck.

You got it, I'm not really a indoor shooter so I was playing on a rainy day

It would be, But if you shoot with a shallow DOF and keep a seperation between the flower and th BG it really make little difference.

If you do try it try to have normal indoor light on the front and I used a LED Flashlight at a angle on the backside to let the flower to bring the light to the front.

It is not a hard shot Kim, the key is to use LED light on the back side for added light and normal light from front, No Flash!!!


That's an awesome looking picture. I must get a velvet backboard....
Thanks Jimmy

The background here was a black windbreaker Far enough from the Flower and Outside DOF.

Gary, nice shot. White orchids are reall difficult to balance because of the relective petal surfaces. You did a great job here.
