Orchid Blossom And Buds
Image by Bill Gracey
This is an orchid that I’ve been exploiting for a while. It’s been out of the spotlight (literally) while it produced a new blossom and a few new buds. I think this may be the longest that we’ve kept one of these alive.

Strobist info. The main light was backlighting from a YN560-II in a Honl snoot behing and below the flower at 1 o’clock, and the fill light came from a YN560 in a 24 inch softbox to the right of the plant at about 4 o’clock. Strobes in manual mode were triggered by a Yongnuo RF-603N.

Other plants, flowers, fruit or thingys that I’ve photographed using strobes, can be seen in my Strobe Lit Plant set. In the description for that set, I list resources that I’ve used to learn how to light with off camera flash. www.flickr.com/photos/9422
