The Nikonians On Location #25 - Black Background

Inspired by some pictures in a magazine Martin takes on creating a dark mood in a small makeshift, tabletop studio using black background paper and a couple of flashes. He shoots dry flowers and leaves and plays with different subjects once the light is set up.

In the slideshow Martin shows examples of the setup he used to get the gloomy, dark, renaissance painting-like mood with a dark background that he aimed for.
