I’ve been trying to take some photos of bromeliads, but it’s been very difficult. They live in a shady spot and hide among their sharp serrated leaves. I can’t capture the colour, the deepness of the red. They seem to reflect a bright light, even without a flash they glow.
I ended up using a telephoto lense, no flash, small aperture and a very long exposure time (5 – 13 seconds). Even so, they defy capture.
