Default Controlled lighting....

I ain't got no fancy lights, just cheap table tops with reflectors that I cover....
But I thought I snip off one of my dahlias and bring it inside to capture.

Appreciate any feedback on this as its my first ever attempt at this. Normally I use this lighting to take pictures of the lampwork beads my wife makes and sells on the internet.

Thanks

Remarkable job indeed thanks to the very good use of backdrop and lighting. #3, especially, has appealed to me

Im sorry Eddie, I cant make up my mind which I like best. They are all really great shots. Theyve taken on an artistic look rather than a straightforward photo.

Wife (she looking over my shoulder) and I both like the look and feel of number one. It just seems to draw you in while viewing.

Thank you all for taking the time to reply, I really appreciate it.
I did learn much from this study, the same subject, but with different light, and camera angle, give it a whole different perspective.
I'll have to try this again, but I'll put more effort into the background so I can even get a greater range of possibilities. Again, thanxs
