They always really pop on a black background, so that's all I bother with nowadays. But my set up is not sophisticated and I use an iPhone X to photo. I do use a daylight bulb, though which makes a difference.
Thanks Musa.Leslie, your parishii is gorgeous! you don't need to bother with equipment, the plant itself does the trick...
It is difficult to get the right light especially for albums; I always have to deal with purple growlights, which give albums always a candylike touch... anoying.
BTW the brown spots on the pouches is that normal wilting or some pest problem?
I like to use different background colors to add a different context to the subject. More of an art, rather than documentation. Although I do know more preference is given to a dark background from most people as it focuses only on the flowers and their appreciation.They always really pop on a black background, so that's all I bother with nowadays.

Apparently the possibility of a roth album isn’t out of the question by several Paph experts. Like most paphs that have album/viride versions, there may be a roth album lurking in the wilds somewhere. Or inadvertently massacred during collecting in the past. It may turn up one day.Roth albums are about as common as unicorns!
I wouldn’t be surprised if someone isn’t already introgressing the album genes from philippinense into a roth to eventually produce something very like a roth album. It would take a few generations but is eminently doable,
