Hops Reference Photos

I bought some dried hops online to use as a reference for the design. I took some macro photos of the hops to capture to detail and texture of the plants, to make my drawings more informed.

 

 As well as the much needed details of the different parts of the plants, I wanted to capture the overall texture of how the hops look.

 

However, I would really like to visit an actual farm to take photos of the hops growing, or at least find some fresh hops. I’d rather not rely on stock photos online, as I feel I can have more control over how my drawings look this way. Using stock photos is quite limiting but unfortunately necessary sometimes if I can’t locate or find the real object.
