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.

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