You're always so gracious, Yew. Sounds like you spend about the same amount of time and energy photographing an orchid as I do. I don't have a really good outdoor venue for mine, so I've been forced inside. I have a black velvet background and use available light when I can. After that, I go to my trusty light box kit. You can look them up on that really common auction website - Much less expensive than a full studio set-up. Can't wait to see your other paphs. My laptop has developed an LCD display problem, so I'm going to lose use of it shortly - but I may invest in a smaller model.
