    Default Black background/walls

    Hey , i will would be doing some press photos for a friend soon and he did like his photos to be taken against black walls..or a black background.

    Anyone seen black painted walls before? I don't recall seeing any in singapore.

    Take photo with sea background in the night with flash. Use low ISO, fast shutter speed and small aperture, short distance.

    You welcome . To be more creative, use more than 1 flash. Or, simple one, use your build in flash, and another flash off camera (or wireless).
