Using photos for plant ID

Title: Using photos for plant ID
Taking photos of our plants is sometimes a challenge, particularly when we want to post them for others for identification.  They may be indoors, in poor light, in a difficult or awkward location or position.  Our goal should be to obtain a photo with as much detail as possible.

One common problem seems to be that photos come out too dark, with insufficient detail.  Using a flash isn’t always the answer, as it can give a washed out appearance.  A technique which I often use is to use my photo editing software (Photo Studio – a very simple program which came with my scanner) to take a dark photo and increase the brightness.  See how this technique has modified 2 photos recently posted for ID.  The “new” photos make not make the ID, but there is a lot more with which to work.
