For this invisible background shot, all I had on me was my speedlight, camera, and some baby powder. Here were my camera settings for this invisible black background.
My subject was looking right into the light when I took this shot. I had a helper of mine shoot some baby powder in front of him so I could get a little bit of mist into the picture. The camera had a hard time picking it up, but it did the trick. But with my settings I was able to get an invisible black background even though it was 2:00 in the afternoon. In Photoshop I did a little bit of contrasting editing, but it turned out great with an invisible black background!
The settings for this invisible black background photo were the same as the previous ones.
Like the last one I had my subject looking directly into the light. With my settings how they were I was able to get a great shot with an invisible black background. Remember that every camera is different.

It turned out to be a great image with a great invisible black background!
