Thanks, George. I wonder who gave me the idea 😉

It beats the heck out of trying to remove backgrounds if you’re all shaky thumbs as I am! The black background here is wonderful. 🙂

Do you use a black background for these or do you manipulate the digital image somehow?
March 24, 2013 at 11:29 pm
Both! 🙂 I used a piece of black foam core as the background, and then darkened it further in the Lightroom 4.

Thank you. 🙂
They are beautiful….looks like Phalaenopsis, my favourite orchid of them all. Set off beautifully against the black background (…hmmmm, I wonder where you may have got the idea from….) 😉

Thank you, Allen. I’m so thrilled to have an Orchid to care for. This is our first one!

A coolish, sunny room will keep it blooming longer.

Excellent. That’s so much for the tip. That’s exactly where we have it.

Thank you, Irene. What a nice compliment!
Love the high contrast between the white and yellow orchid and the black background.
