How to Create a Fake Background in Camera That Is Completely Black
If you want to know how to create a fake background in camera and not use a backdrop, this article The Invisible Black Backdrop- Photography Technique by Glyn Dewis explains how he does it. The process to creating a fake background in camera is really neat. It is important that you keep your ISO at the lowest possible sensitivity, 100 is usually the lowest most can go. You will then make your shutter speed at the appropriate timing to sync with the flash, usually 200-250th of a second. Then lastly, to create this fake background, you will need to bump your f-stop up so that it brings in less light. This number will depend on the day and the natural lighting around you so it will be good to test it out. Adjust the f-stop until all you see is a completely black image; you then know that you have successfully created a fake black background in camera. Once the fake background is set, then you will get your artificial lighting and direct it at the subject. When the camera is clicked you should see a completely fake black background and a visible subject. It is quite easy and fun to create a fake background in camera and can really provide some amazing photos.
