Photography Comments
PHOTOGRAPHY: Awarded Plants How to photograph them properly; what to do, illustrated by four photos in color illustrating the best approaches; what not to do, six photos illustrating the opposite. AA85-126 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Close-ups A review of equipment available, ending with a recommendation that a microlens, a matched teleconverter, a set of extension tubes and a camera constitute a good compromise; refer to Ca81(3)-38; information on self-instruction, metering exposure, filters, lighting, film selection, refer to Ca82(4)-21 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Color Film Problems Differences in sensitivity of color film as compared to the human eye; many lavender flowers seem to have high reflectance in the far red region of the spectrum where the eye has little sensitivity. A78-928 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Handbook For advanced technology on all aspects of photographing orchid flowers refer to G.Seibels -- Handbook on orchid photography (A.0.S.,1980); notable for its avant-garde use for every shot of a black background, appropriately mortifying and macabre in the case of endangered species. RMH 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Of Orchids For advice on various aspects, refer to A70-814+; A71-232+; A71-592+; A71-594+; A71-1095+; A72-582+; A74-4+; A74-614+; OD69-194,289; OD70-9O+; OD71-281+ 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Professional Advice Unusual pointers: on the tripod; white flowers differ from reds in photography; watching for shine on paphiopedilums; shadows and backdrops; black, floodlamps,different kinds of film; refer to OA82-9; NZ85-70; NZ86-132; W10-305 0
PHOTOGRAPHY: Standard Backdrops Since the days of Dr. George Kennedy who photographed all his scientific shots against a black background, that color has been increasingly the preferred one for non-scientific illustration by magazine editors and advertisers although orchids rarely grow completely surrounded by black; a dark flower, of course, requires a non-black background and for this a medium green seems to be preferred.
