BW Cattleya by braxtonds
BW Cattleya
B&W Cattleya:
---
*This image won Best in Show at the Akron Orchid Society spring show
Cattleya Orchid from my personal collection. This cattleya orchid blooms only once a year with gigantic 8" blooms. The scientific name of this orchid is Blc. Mahina Yahiro 'Ulii' x Lc. Mildred Rives 'Orchidglade'. I love the very large frilly lip of this orchid, it reminds me of a dancer's long dress. To accentuate this, I converted the image to black and white.

Pink Lady Slipper Orchid by braxtonds
Pink Lady Slipper Orchid

Sorry I've been absent for a bit, moving into a new house kinda consumes your whole life. But I'm back and I have a few new images to share with the world. Early spring is one of my most favorite times of the year because it kicks off the beginning of orchid season. So expect many flower photos to come.

This Pink Phragmipedium Orchid is from my personal collection. This pink lady slipper orchid blooms only once a year with gigantic 8" blooms with long tresses. The scientific name of this orchid is Phrag. Bouley Bay. The petals and cup are a lovely deep pink shade with the inside a very pale yellow with red spotting. I always get excited when this amazing flower starts to bloom, its a real showstopper.

I had an interest in photography early on, but hadn't taken it further than just casual vacation pictures until after college when I realized that I completed my degree in Biological Sciences and hadn't taken one 'fun' class. As a graduation present to myself I bought my first DSLR, the Nikon d40 and began my journey as a self-taught photographer. I love taking photos of the world as I see it, but trying to express myself through photography needed something more than just focal lengths and apertures. I found Photoshop and threw myself into it. It was a creative outlet that allows the inner drama of any photo to be unleashed. I will admit that I use many techniques to push an image to something more, the key is to always allow restraint to keep the viewer grounded to this reality, well, mostly.

Tight crops, composition and drama!
