Is there a way to get a black background on your subject with flash on camera?
8 months ago

I just bought my first speedlight and i saw that some photographers get a black background on their subjects without a backdrop, but just a flash. I see that the flash is usually off camera, but i was wondering if it was possible to do it with the flash on the camera. I dont have chump change to buy a wireless flash trigger.

i know they do it by just first underexposing the background until it is pitch black, then adding the speed light creating a lighted subject on a black background
