I know in the past I have said that in order to get a black background I have used LR and turned the exposure all the way down for the areas I wanted to be black, but for this shot I used a different approach. I used a flash. I made sure that the camera wasn’t picking up any ambient light from the background and also made sure to position the flower where no other objects would show up. The only thing I ‘edited’ out was the stem of the flower, otherwise the rest was from the use of the flash.
