The style that I tend to gravitate towards as a photographer is moody with deep contrasting colors. If you’re like me, then creating an invisible black background is your next project.
A technique that I used to capture these photos is called SQIBB, which stands for Studio Quality Invisible Black Background.
It doesn’t look like it, but these photos were taken in a well-lit room. I adjusted my camera settings to create an invisible black background behind my subject.
I used an auxiliary light source with a snoot diffuser close to my subject so the light wouldn’t leak anywhere else. In post I darkened some areas that were too light and highlighted my subject to create more contrast. You can use this technique with portraits, product photography and even with food photography.
