I hope you don't mind if I ask a newbie question for my learning - How do you get this dark background? Did you just shift the rose to a darker background, or did you employ some high shutter speed flash technique together with the ambient light?
Thanks very much! heheheh. Something much more high-tech than that. I shot it against black velvet.
