      - Hey Stephanie! My camera settings for this photo were 1/250s . f/9.0 . ISO 100 & I usually place the subject 5-6 feet away from my backgrounds. That helps to throw the winkles out of focus & smooth everything out. When I set up my lighting for a black background I try not to get any light on the black at all. That is why I used a 1/250s shutter speed, so it could kill any ambient light that there might have been room, & I adjust the flash so it only hits the subject & doesn't spill on the background. As far as the softness of the light that is hitting my subject in this photo, that just reflects the medium sized light modifier that I was using and how close it was to her, it was just out of the frame. The larger the light source & the distance it is to your subject determines how soft or hard that light will be.
      When I set up for a shoot using a white background I try and get the flash that is lighting my background 1 stop higher than what I'm lighting my subject. So say I expose my subject for f/5.6 I would want the background to be exposed for f/8. This will ensure that the background will blow out completely, giving me that clean pure white that I want.

      I hope that all makes sense and helps out ... Hahaha =)
