Try different lighting in the studio, such as back lighting with a softbox (or use any light softened with a white sheet) behind your flowers. Tulip ReflectionsTulip ReflectionsPink and orange tulips reflected on white.

Add a secondary light to the flowers themselves for emphasis. Orange Tulip circleOrange Tulip circleOrange tinged with yellow tulips on white refected in a curve.

Change the background to black with black acrylic for reflections for more drama. Digital paint for a romantic look.

When able to do outdoor photography with spring to summer flowers, try wide open apertures to get bokeh, or soft backgrounds.
