Hello all. I'm new to photography, in a way.... lets say I'm not very good at this point. ..and I'm trying to get some good macro shots of flies with a completely white background. So far i'm not having too much luck with getting the pure white color for the backdrop. Is this a trick in the photo editing software or is my lighting not right? I'm using sort of a homemade "light tent" with tissue paper as a light filter on a white card. I have a basic Nikon setup with a regular 18-55 lens on a macro setting. Nothing fancy but it should work. I'm having an especially hard time with all black flies coming in focus ...
Also I scanned though the topics a ways and didn't see anything right off, but if this has already been discussed in another post, just point and I'll find it eventually
