Get a black background anywhere!


Beautiful spring lillies!! With this I was wanting to take a semi-minimalist shot of a single flower, so I grabbed the gear and the baby and headed about 5 feet out my front door. I feel that there is such beauty to a singular flower against black. We didn't really use a black background. I just changed some camera settings and voila! These were taken in super bright sunlight, but with the shutter turned up so far, the flash becomes the only light.

What I used:

Nikon D600

Nikon sb600

Yongnuo yn622ntx trigger and receiver

tripod

flash stand or manually hold the flash

Gary Fong Power Snoot to focus the light in that one little area

Settings:

Aperture: f16-f20-You really just need to take the aperature down until your screen is black, so test that before adding any additional flash.

Flash: Full Power, +3, zoomed all the way in

Shutter: 1/4000

The 3rd photo featured shows what the background really looked like and was shot at f7.1, 1/4000.




I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any questions, feel free to email me. :)
