We decided to experiment with our camera and remote flash to achieve a different look of how we normally perceive flowers that we see every day. We took different shots of Petunias that we have in our little garden, positioning the flash in different places until we got this shot. There was enough light outside but the flash overpowered the ambient light. We loved the dramatic result that we got with the deep colors, shadows and the backlight that allows us to see all the detail of the texture on the stem of the flower.
Please keep in mind that the exposure settings listed above only work for the lighting conditions I had when I took the picture.
