Absolutely amazing. Those orchid shots, and all of the others, are quite impressive.
love the pics keep em coming
Great show, Kyle. Very nice and clean setup and what amazing photography!

Great pics, as always.
Dang! Those are some awesome macro shots!
1) What are the tubes your are using for leaf cuttings? They look pretty cool.
2) What background are you using? The photos look amazing with the black contrast.
Thank ya, guys.
@brinkerh420: They're just glass test tubes from somewhere on Amazon. They don't seem to be working, though. Nothing is doing anything. Nothing's dying, but nothing's growing either, lol. I just use black felt for the background. It's more of a lighting thing though. You can use virtually anything that's dark as the background and get a black background like that if you light it properly.
In other news, after talking with Brie a little bit, I decided to try and totally recalibrate my monitor. Some day I'll get a really nice monitor and a Spyder3 to calibrate it, but I can't afford that nonsense right now. After tinkering with things and being utterly unhappy, I had a sort of epiphany. The screen on my camera -must- be calibrated, it would be silly if they weren't calibrated well on DSLRs. So I held the camera up to my monitor and did the best I could to make my monitor look just like the screen on the camera, lol. I think it worked out well.
So hopefully future photoshoots look a little nicer.
