Default Oncidium Firecracker photo

I have been playing around with a couple inexpensive daylight CFL's lights. I have been trying to add more depth or 3-D to my orchid photos. They have been rather flat looking. I just did a photo shoot on an Onc. Firecracker today. I used 1 CFL, bare bulb, rather close and at an acute angle towards the subject. This created shadows, but they were too harsh. I then took my other CFL, attached an umbrella, moved it to a more head on position, then adjusted the distance to soften the harsh shadows. The attached photo has more of a 3-D look than most of my orchid photo library.
