Great shot of an exceptional cattelya.
I apologize for all the tech questions, but it really helps me to know as much as I can about the best techniques for photographing my orchids.
And kudos to you, again, my friend, for such beautiful work.
On my wish list! Love the bifoliates.
As I said, I have never used an LED light, but Phillip, my husband, has a ring LED for his 60mm fixed-focus and he's gunning for a 105mm like yours. He's gotten some funky colors from the ring, and I REALLY don't like using a flash (makes for a flat-looking photo), so we both tend to shoot in indirect daylighting indoors, but get the best colors outdoors, as long as the light is good enough. Thanks for letting me know about the white balance - I also take a lot of shots with different white balances to compare which give the most accurate color. I've found, though, that anything in the darker tones of pink/purple/magenta is REALLY tough to get, so I think I'll see if an LED will help with that. Thanks!
Maura I have this species. If you wait till spring I will try and send you a division. Bifoilates hate being moved. It will do better when they start producing new roots. Just remind me...I will forget.
