Black Background Portraits

In this project, we had to make it look like there was an infinite background of darkness for this portrait. In order to get the right lighting, we had to put the light on the person, not behind the person. One thing that didn’t work was taking the picture far away from the person, because it messed up the lighting. one thing that did work was getting very close to the subject, because it made the focus better, as well as the background.
