Gorgeous flower!

Heather, brachys are so small you could probably grow a specimen of each of the common brachy species in the footprint of one of your large multis... :poke:

I have a (James Bacon x concolor) in bud right now, it will be a 1st bloom seedling, been waiting years to see this. Hoping for clear soft yellow with spots. Your plant gives me hope.

So lovely, the buttery coloured flush to the petals is perfect.

Thanks, Matt. My lighting setup is very simple: I have a sunroom with most of the windows facing S-SW. In the middle of the room, I have a small table and two chairs. On the chair farthest from the window I place a large piece of cardboard covered with black velvet. I place the flower to be photographed on the table so that it's background is black, and my camera on a tripod so that my back is to the main windows. All the windows make the light quite diffuse (sometimes a little too flat, in fact) -- if the sun is shining, I wait until the angle is such that it's not directly on the flower. I use a reflector card to bounce light up into the flower if needed. That's about it.

I need to add that I taught Photoshop for a number of years, so the photo always gets some treatment there. I use the RAW file format on my camera, so all the data is in the file and just needs some fine-tuning.
