Hi, Me again. I have just seen photographs of a wedding that I attended, on some of the portraits the background has been or seems to have been blocked out without any touchup by the photography (completely black) photo's have been taken with an S.L.R. camera & flash was attached also taken outdoors. Is this possible to do with a Digital (A1) and if so HOW? :?

I am only guessing that exposure comes into it somehow.

Are you sure the photographer didn't just use a portable backdrop?

If it was taken outdoors at night, you can use the flash and a fast shutter speed to only expose the foreground, which leaves the background completely black. But if it was taken during the day, then he probably used a portable black cloth to put up behind the subjects for the photos.
