This article happens to be about orchid photography, but it could just as well be about photographing roses or model airplanes, or any small, detailed object that you're interested in. I tried growing orchids for several years, and thus followed the popular forums and looked for photos on the internet, like anyone else who is delving into a hobby. As you might expect, I found some really beautiful photos, but many more that were awful.

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you'll know I received the Canon 35mm F/1.4 L lens last week. And Oh! My! Goodness! I nearly died from excitement. I've been waiting for this lens f.o.r.e.v.e.r but wanted to make sure it fit into my style and aesthetic. I used it for the first time at Meg+Tim's wedding and I loved it. L o v v v v e d i t ! I causally joked it'd take the place of my 50mm F/1.2 L, but I'm happy to report I'm still sticking to the 50mm as my all-time favorite lens.
Most of my clients prefer at least some color studies during their session, and I love working with the complete palette that life has to offer. The process of selecting backgrounds to bring out a child’s eye color, or using color to create harmony between siblings, fuels my artistic passion.
