There are no secrets... it only took me years of experimenting in the studio. First you hit it with everything you've got, like all things in life, hihi, now it is less and less. Just one spotlight set up in the position so that the light catches the edges and part of the flower... until I'm happy... a black bg.
I use cutters and flags to shield and play with the light.
Photography is an Art, a way of life and seeing life, it is my passion, mental and emotional nourishment. All I can say is experiment, experiment, experiment... the exposure is irrelevant because each flower, light source is different. Make it your own!
Have a wonderful day, filled with love and thanx for your visit, M, (*_*)
