  • How to Make a Pure Black Photography Background!

    Yes, I was thinking this too.If shooting objects that you want to all look the same colour and the background to stay the same, then a few simple tricks will help.* Use a stable light source. The suns great for some quick stuff, but if you're mucking around for a while, the colour temp will change as the day/clouds/whatever change, affecting the exposure and white balance, so it can sometimes be easier to shoot inside under (cheap) controlled lights against a (cheap paper/cloth) white or black background.* If possible don't shoot on 'auto'.
