anything will look black i


anything will look black if it is four or more stops darker than your subject…

what you want to do is try something less reflective, I have a velvety polar fleece blanket that works perfect… put it on a stand then use a seperation light to light the back of your subject and make sure the main light on your subject is bright enough to push the ambient light on the back drop to pure black… think light ratios how bright is my subject, how much light is on my background, and is any light from the front spilling onto the background..

Even a seemless white backdrop can be made to look black if you can control light levels and lightspill to keep it unlit.
