    I was interested in getting the black background naturally, without the help of PS, so I spoke with ClarinetJDW who had a couple of awsome photos that had very natural black backgrounds and got his advice. Sooo, this is my first attempt. It is an unusual object, but I had a lot of fun with it. I actually pulled it out of my potpourri bowl LMAO!
    Thanks Clarinet-for your help. I am sure I will be seeking your advice more in the future, for you are an inspiration!

    Not the best subject, but was handy at midnight :lmao:

    Now I am curious.. what exactly did you do for the background?

    Good sharp focus on this!

    I thought the same thing, as I was just reading about deoxyribonucleic acid (and learning how to spell it)! (Nothing like quoting a person who posted after you eh? ;) )

    As Clarinet instructed..I taped it to my glass back door (at night), turned off all of the lights ( I did keep one on behind me so that I could see what I was focusing on LOL) Then took it to PS and took out very few blemishes.

    Did a good job on the background, too. It looks very natural. :)

    Coincidence- I made that discovery last night shooting pictures of the fence with my flash on. All I got when I looked at them was a really good picture of the fence, and no background whatsoever... Cool!
