I'm pleased with this shot, it's thanks to reading someone's description earlier on of using a television as a black background for shooting flowers, previously ive used black card, and found it difficult. Why i never thought of the tele i dont know !
I turned all lights off and used only the flash.
When looking at the image on the comp there were a few reflections from the tv, so reduced the brightness which made the background solely black and took away the reflections.
Any comments most appreciated,
Sam.

This is a truly very well captured shot of the lilies - beautifully arranged in the frame with lovely soft lighting, excellent detail and the black b/g to show them off so nicely.

A lovely image indeed - beautifully presented. I too use the TV screen -- but have never though of using a flash with it - might give that one a go. thanks for the tip.
