FWIW I know what the light will be doing to the metering, and I use matrix metering plus experience.

Was not using -1EV on this shot. Will try this EV for future shots.

As every lighting situation and new perspective is different , much better to use the Live Histogram reading to guide you in what amount of negative valued Exposure Compensation to choose. Aim for the "bulk" of the lit-up "dots to be not higher than 80% of Live Histogram full-scale reading.

I was about five feet away from the flowers.

You did well considering. For maximum DOF, always use the lowest Focal Length that you can !
