Orchids and Flowers


A few months ago I visited the American Orchid Society gardens in Del Ray Beach, Florida. I spent the day roaming amongst beautiful orchids, flowers and gardens. I went there with a black cardboard backdrop to place behind the orchids to isolate them. I must admit I looked ridiculous holding the back drop with one hand and shooting with the other. All the while people walking around and me waiting for a lull in the breeze.

I used a Nikon 105mm macro lens. If anyone has tried to photograph macro in a breeze you know how hard it is. The orchids were constantly moving back and forth. It was like shooting a moving target. I tried to get the most depth of field (most of the picture in focus) using a tripod and remote trigger set-up.

If you would like to see more pictures of that day please go to my website in the gallery labeled flowers. http://www.mitchellblochphotography.com/flowers
