They are just wonderfully rendered, Mukund.

Please describe your lighting strategy.  And where do you find such perfect specimens?

Happy Day.   :)

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

Nice high-key effect on the 1st, 3rd and 4th shots. Because of the POV, I find the 3rd and 4th especially appealing.

These are all from flower exhibitions. Horticulture is quite a strong business in Pune so there are lot many exhibitors.

Regarding lighting I always shoot under natural light. I believe natural light is best for color and softness for the pretty flowers. It is always indirect reflected light so as to avoid harsh shadows.

Rest I do selective lighting (brightness) adjustment in PS. I find PS quite flexible for this. Many photographers use Lightroom but I don't find LR suitable for my workflow. Example is last photo in above series.
