Its All Gone Dark

It was a very chill out weekend, so as we are back to the grindstone today thought I would share this invisible black background set up with you guys.

I follow a cool photographer and retoucher called Glyn Dewis. He has been posting some new work which he uses an invisible black background. He photographs his subject in day light, but using a single strobe or speedlight creates a black background, while his subject get perfectly lit. So I thought I would show you how its done to.

This is done by being able to trigger off camera flash and doing the following.

1 Setting your camera to manual
2 setting the ISO to its lowest, normally iso100
3 Setting your shutter speed to its highest sync speed for flash, the Norm is 1/250th or 1/200th. I have a Canon EOS 6D for some reason Canon thought 1/180th would be ok, I don’t know why they have done this but they did.
4 Set your aperture just high enough, so when you take a picture its just black on the back of your camera with no flash firing.

When you take another shot with the flash switched on you will capture what ever is being lit by the flash and all other light will drop off leaving a black background.

As you can see by this first image I was set up in my garden in daylight.

The second shot below is from the back of the camera without the flash firing. Its given me a great starting point my aperture was about F10.

This third image is my final shot after I had been playing around with the flash position to get the look I wanted.

The Power Of LinkedIn

Had Mark come to the studio this morning, he owns Corporate Drama www.corporatedrama.co.uk and he wanted to update his head shots. Spent a couple of hrs with him in the studio this morning and he went away with some awesome shots.

These shots prove the power of using LinkedIn to network, I was making connections last week and Mark was one of them. My timing was perfect as he was looking to have new head shots. He checked out my profile and website that day and booked his session.

Picking and choosing the right people to connect with will pay dividends and don’t bombard people with loads of messages telling them what you do. Be polite send a thank you for the connection and explain your services, tell them that you’re their if they need you. Send updates every so often just as a reminder but don’t be pushy. Its all about networking! Upset a connection and you have lost all of those potential recommendations.
