It's National Orchid Day. I don't know about you, but I have a very difficult time keeping an orchid alive. As you can see from the example photo, I do much better with dried orchids. Orchids come in so many beautiful and varied colors. Today, consider your background when you create your photograph. If you don't have orchids at your disposal, choose any flower to photograph. Background texture and color create visual interest. I photographed these dry orchids on my kitchen floor tile. Another great place to photograph is your garage. The floor is often textured and the light is naturally beautiful.
What background will you choose today?
