Thread: macro shoot: black background

    Default macro shoot: black background

    hi guys, some of the macro shots tat i've seen has a black background. I've shot some of those before, but i forgot the setting to create black background.

    i'm not referring to placing a black cardboard or something behind the subjects, rather i'm referring to the camera setting, like speed n aperture.

    so how to create those simple black background?

    Low ISO, flash, high speed and/or very small aperture.

    flash? u mean dedicated marco ring flash only? "normal" type of flash will bring out the background izzit?

    Any flash would work, but you need to control where the light is going. Make sure the background is as far as possible.
