That's really pretty. I just love tulips...you've got a very graceful capture there! well done!
Great lighting. Love the shot!
My only comment is that it's a great shot. 8)
I'm still a little confused about how to get such a dark background. Is it totally from using the flashes as the only light source (if so, how do you focus??), or did you actually have a dark backdrop?
There are two things here that combined create the black background. The background is actually a muted grey muslin background I use for some portrait work. The key is flash sync or shutter speed.
For these I shoot in manual mode. Shutter set at 250 and apeture at f16. Shutter speed determines the amount of ambient light while apeture controls flash.
Hope that helps.
A classic, beautiful shot.
Tulips not my favorite but a well done shot.
