The Invisible Black Backdrop – Photography Technique
Apr 3, 2012

Folks,

please let me know with I'm doing wrong here. I can't seem to reproduce this effect with the A77 and Minolta 5600HSD flash.

Camera settings
Manual, F5.6, ISO 100, Shutter 1/250

Flash settings
Wireless (on camera)
Manual (on Flash)

Problem seems to be that when I set the camera menu flash settings to Manual and lift the popup flash, the camera flash settings revert from manual to ADI with TTL selectable.. Manual setting is disabled.

Is there a way around this to achieve the desired Invisible Black Backdrop effect ?

Thanks
