I wonder what affect a piece of the diamand plate aluminum would have under a car?
Sounds interesting??
Tom

That could be very cool I think. I bet there are many textures and surfaces that would work well. I like the idea of using diamond plate with a jet black car on it.

A click on a Whi-Bal card shot, raise the highlights and lower the darks on the sliders under the T tab in CS3 Camera Raw.

Hi pepperoni,

Do you find that black fabric is better than black seamless? Does it seam to 'soak up' more light?

Seamless paper? I've used paper and fabric and had my best success so far using fabric. For black, try to increase the distance between your subject and the background. This way the subject is lit, but the background isn't. That helps get the pure black background.

:cool:

Hi pepperoni,

I do understand about subject to background distance and how to control exposure to achieve black. I was just curious if there was s difference in the absorption of a piece of black fabric that has some dimension to it and a flat piece of black seamless or poster paper. Does like work like sounds does where more surface area absorbs more light?

Not sure what you mean, but black fabric is a lot less reflective than black paper. If you're after pure black, I'd recommend the fabric.
