While messing around with these flowers I decided to do a very simple lighting set up that might help others starting out with studio flash. Now you don’t need to have big expensive lights to get this effect. It’s one flash set at F8 and a white reflector giving a reading of F4.
So it’s a very simple set up as you can see. Just set the flash to f8 and allow the light to bounce off the white reflector to add some fill light, giving a reading of F4 this is just enough to give some light to the left side of the copper jug holding the flower. If you don’t have a soft box use a white wall or piece of card to bounce the flash off. It will give similar results.
This looks natural and is a good starting point if you are just beginning to use off camera flash for this kind of shot.
If I was to give any advice it would be keep it simple, and build from there.
