Orchid Show at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum

Here’s a few shots I took at the Latin American Orchid exhibit at the Smithsonian over the weekend.

Yellow Paph

Pink Dendrobium

White Cattleya

All shots taken with a Rolleiflex 2.8E with a Rolleinar 2 close-focus adapter, Kodak Portra 400, and hand-held at 1/30th of a second between f2.8 and f4.5. I think I’ll go back another weekend and try again this time with a flash so I can get more depth of field. Don’t know if I’ll take the Metz or something smaller, as the Metz may be TOO powerful.
