This is Oro Verde, a variegated Sanguinea. She has the most velvet soft leaves. She does not seem to be bothered by bugs and stuff! Very easy to grow!


I want to start sharing some photographs with you that I have taken of my Brugmansia!

Alan,

What type of lens and camera do you use, and how do you get the beautiful black background, may I ask?

I use two different camera's A Cannon and a Fuji. The Cannon is a 20d SLR and I use a standard 50mm lens. The Fuji is a 12mp fixed lens but it produces great pics.
On some of the pics. I use black velvet for the backgroud, others are blacked out using Photoshop.
Hope this helps
Alan

Thank you, Alan. It is helpful indeed. Photoshop appears to be quite a useful albeit expensive software package!
