Daily Photo #15 (Mar. 26)

SORRY! Don't be mad. I didn't post one for Tuesday because I didn't take one :( Instead I did about 4 hours of editing that I'm trying to catch up on. So as a treat to myself I didn't do my daily photo (would induce more editing).

So to make up for it, yesterday after work I went out and bought an orchid. Making this the only daily photo so far that I have paid for.

I had no idea how to light them though. When I tried the light above my head it over exposed and blew out the photos way too much. Then my friend mentioned to try doing a silhouette with the flower. And this is what happened. I LOVE the results. Bringing it into PS all I had to do was up the contrast a bit to make the colors pop out.

This is definitely my favorite so far out of all the daily photos. Can't wait to get a macro lens and attempt this again :D



  1. Absolutely love this pic, crisp & clean, looks good enough to eat!

  2. I love orchids. They are my favorite flower. I don't know much about photography, but I do know that it can take up to 6 years for an orchid to bloom. Your picture is lovely!
