How do I get Black Backgrounds in my Photographs?

How do I get Black Backgrounds in my Photographs? | Photography tips and tools | Scoop.it

The short answer is, black backgrounds are created as a result of a 5 ‘stop’ difference in exposure levels between the main subject and its background.

 

The long answer is : Your camera is unable to see as well as the human eye.

 

This is one of the reasons, why we sometimes get very contrasty images with ‘blown’ highlights in light areas and very dark shadows in other areas.

 

Our eyes can see up to 16 different levels (or in camera terms ‘f stops’) of light, which means we can differentiate between very light areas and very dark areas and still see detail in both.

10 Things Garry Winogrand Can Teach You About Street Photography | Eric Kim

10 Things Garry Winogrand Can Teach You About Street Photography | Eric Kim | Photography tips and tools | Scoop.it

(Above image: copyright Garry Winogrand, World’s Fair, New York City, 1964)

Garry Winogrand is one of my favorite street photographers that I have gained much photographic insight and wisdom from. He was in-arguably one of the most prolific street photographers of his time (he shot over 5 million photographs in his career) and one of the most passionate. I never understood a lot of the things that he said in street photography like why you should wait a year or two before developing your shots, why photographs don’t tell stories, and how photographers mistake emotion for what makes great photographs. Although I didn’t really get what he was saying, I was intrigued....

Macro Photography: What is focus stacking?

 

In my blog a couple of weeks ago (Creative Photography – Shallow Depth of Field) I looked at understanding depth of field. In particular I was talking about a creative use of a shallow depth of field, where we purposely have only a small part of the image in sharp focus, set against an area of out of focus colour.

Telling the story: five more tips for better travel photography | Imaging Resource | Photography tips and tools | Scoop.it

 

I think the reasons we take travel photos are to remember where we were and to share those places with others. When we upload images to the web or make prints when we return home, we want our friends and families to see and enjoy the things we encountered. However, just as there is a difference between tourists and travelers, the former flitting like bugs on the surface of things, the latter happily diving below the surface, so it is with photographers. Despite carrying expensive cameras, the tourist photographer spends little time in any one place. Mostly, they snap a few photos of local monuments, buildings, or some scenic setting, before they quickly move on...

Camera Craft: Landscape or Portrait?

Camera Craft: Landscape or Portrait? | Photography tips and tools | Scoop.it
Which camera orientation should I use landscape or portrait?

 

There are lots of different decisions we have to make when we’re taking photographs – what lens to use, what aperture and shutter speed to choose, what to include in or exclude from the picture, whether to use any filters… the list goes on.

 

But one of the simplest decisions we have to make can also have the most fundamental effect on the resulting image – and this is simply whether to have the camera in a horizontal (landscape) or a vertical (portrait) orientation.
