This photo looks straightforward, but it involves a little magic.  The trick is in the shadow.  What I have done here is light the flower from above right, and also from below – as it is resting on some translucent white plastic.  The shadow efect is simply black cardboard cut to a shape traced from another light (which was not used in the photo).  That shape is called a gobo as it “goes between” the under floor light and the subject – in efect atached to the base of the white plastic – and voila, one well lit flower with depth added by trick shadow!
