Lately, I’ve been working on a new kind of photography project. This project, in it’s initial stages was as unassuming as a small bud.
However, as time passed, the project swelled into a bigger than life blossom from which one’s attention cannot be pulled from.
Hours were spent hovering over plant, camera, and anyone who dared to enter the room where Mother Orchid was birthing her young. I worried about batteries dying, if the intervals I had set where often enough, whether I had the correct aperture settings, and if the flash would kick in when needed.
In the end, I think it was all worth the effort — even if I had to do it two times to get it right.
See for yourself and let me know if you like how it turned out.
