|If your camera does not have Flash Exposure Compensation and only expensive ones usually do, a useful tip for using flash in low light, to prevent the colors looking bleached, is to stick a piece of thin white paper in front of the flash as you shoot. This reduces and diffuses the light and you get quite a nice " Victorian water color" effect. Also putting a piece of plain black paper behind the plant, as a sort of improvised screen, cuts out unwanted background. You may need someone's help to hold this in place.|
|Your Pomme d'Or is beautiful, love the lip. I also have this plant. Mine is a great grower, but blooms only in the Fall. I'm envious of the tall spike. Mine blooms down inside the leaves. I've often wondered if there were some trick to make the spikes grow taller. Thx for the photo tip. |
Happy growing, Sheila :)
|Looks a lot like my Lc. Gold Digger. Nice!|
|I think I have one of these, nice colors!|
