I try to get to the Kingwood every month or so, because the plants are creating and growing and doing their daily work... so I like to visit and be surprised by what is new that they have created.
The sun is softened by the cloudy windows, but the sun still creates shadows and adds a third dimention. The black background is slow and tedious work, but it removes distrations and lets the succulent burst onto the "stage."
I'll be doing teaching tutorials about photography in future tweets. Let me know what your interested. John
