When using flash I like to experiment at times and try different lighting techniques. I wanted to get a silhouette look but I didn’t have a white background available. I thought “what if I put the light source (softbox) directly behind the subject?” Yes… In these two photos the softbox IS the actual background.
These two images are straight out of camera with no post processing. I shot these black and white JPG.
