Lighting with reflector

I absolutely love fuschia blossoms, but they are very small and delicate. They move with the smallest whisper of wind, so first I try to isolate a bloom that has good protection. Many of them are purple and burgundy, but this one is white, making it even more difficult to get the color right.  You can try flash, but shadows become an issue and possibility of blowing out the highlights.

Instead I used a soft gold reflector and bounced light into the white of this bloom.  All other colors were rendered appropriately with good saturation.
