The flashes (2 of them) were set to the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and they were set to manual power (maybe 1/32 or 1/64). I have no idea how ttl works so Ive stayed away from it.

Then again you might alternativly achieve the desired black background without having to stop down the lens that much, e.g. by using a ND filter for the lens, and setting the flashes to full power.

Unfortunately, the flash kit Im using (Flashpoint MF12) is a filter thread mounted kit.   Im not too sure how I could use a ND filter on the MF12.  Im sure there is a YouTube video out there showing it.

I take photos, not particularly good photos, mostly abstract photos. Yeah abstract is what I would call them, you might call them blurry.
