I visited California for my grandmother’s 93rd birthday. She had received a couple bouquets of assorted flowers and orchids. She asked me to photograph the flowers so that she could remember them after they wilted away.
I shot these orchids in the backyard in bright sunlight. I used a Canon 60D with a 50mm f/1.8 for a wide open aperture for a shallow depth of field. I’m pleased with this shot but, I wish I had used a reflector on some of my other shots. There really wasn’t a whole lot of post-processing on this one. A little vibrance, some saturation and I increased the black levels to darken the background a tiny bit.
