    Hi folks!

    I am new here and have really enjoied reading the forum. I have two main hobbies, orchids and photography. Beyond that, I am a college professor and teach theatre design & technology. I am working on a new book on orchid photography and looking for submissions. If you are interested, check it out and submit a photo or three for consideration! :D

    I am much better at design and layout than photography so far, but I love a challenge. Here is a shot I took recently of a tiny phrag (ladyslipper orchid). I should have used a macro setting since the bloom is so tiny--only one inch across at the widest part. The photo is a bit fuzzy, but I like it.

    Welcome!

    I lived in Littlerock for three years when I was younger. Still remember the snakes!

    Enjoy the forum.

    Hallo Orchidboi and welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    Lets hope our very "digital_flower_pics" will find you here soon ... he might be a good candidate for photo submissions of one or three pics - also of orchids, maybe - for your book! While I myself have tons of flower pics, I doubt there is even only one orchid among them ... :scratch:

    Welcome to the forum, orchidboi. :D

    I have some orchid pictures on my website, digitalflowerpictures.com/

    take a look and see if you like any of them (or if they are good enough :blushing: ) for your project.

    I just read this article: Americans Obessed with Orchids. Maybe you will find it of interest.

    Hi! Thanks for the link to your website and the article! You photos are stunning. The orchid shots are all very unique. If you would like to participate in the project, you are most welcome!!

    I have a blue and gold macaw (saw the red one on your site). I just love that photo! Murphy, my macaw, loves to have his photo taken. He is such a nut for attention.

    Thanks for the kind welcome!
    Bruce
