At one point in my career I was shooting professional headshots, some of which were used to accompany a resume, blog post, or article that had been written. This type of photography requires shadowless conditions. To achieve this I used a huge tripod stand with a bank of daylight balanced fluorescent bulbs housed in a reflector box with a diffuser panel.

From this experience I got the idea of using this same setup to shoot portraits of plants. I ended up shooting about a dozen different plants out in my garden.
