Photographic Story Marie Selby Botanical Garden in Sarasota, FL – I had the pleasure of being invited to Selby Garden’s Orchid House early in the morning before they opened to photograph some of their orchids. This was unusual photography for me, as I rarely do close up photography. My customary imagery is large wide-open landscapes. However, now that I’m getting involved in digital photography, I can have better depth of field and faster exposure times than with a large format camera, so I gladly accepted the invitation. To photograph the orchids I used my Sony A7R Cambo Artus with an 80mm enlarging lens. This orchid is native to the Costa Rican and Panamanian cloud forests. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with a high-quality digital camera. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 ink and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. Clyde signs and numbers the photograph.
