I'm going to be taking some pics of a black friend and he said something that really worried me. He said most protographers never get good lighting on him and he always blends in with the background (He wants a Noir-ish black background). I've never really taken studio pics of an african american and have really never thought about special lighting cirumstances. What are the other photogs doing wrong that I should avoid? I'm thinking I need to pull him away from the back ground, light him with a key, a fill, and possibly a back light to separate him from the background?
