Position of light

This is just my first experiments with positioning a lamp in relation to an object. I have acquired some second-hand lights which I will set up over the weekend to explore one light, two light and three light options. I started out on the light box however I moved to black card as I thought the contrast would help in showing the difference in lighting. In this instance I prefer the light being over head (4th Set) as it shows the petal details of the flower, the background has maintained its black hue without any glare from the light and the colour of the flower seems true to its original shade. The 5th image in the series where the flower is back-lit does however highlight the delicate nature of the flower as well as maintaining details in the petals.
