I used my colored tee shirts as a background color for some of the not so great pics that I've posted here. If you wear any, or some other type of shirt that's black, try that first as background before running around shopping for a certain sheet of something.

On the fly picture, with the black background, there's no reflected light. It looks good. The whole sheet picture shows reflection.
If your black background material is on a hard surface (taped to a piece of cardboard, say), then you can lean it slightly forward. If the bottom of the background is just an inch farther back than the top, any reflection should be downwards. None of it will show in the photo ... showing completely black background.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

I like the middle one, but the black really brings out the fly.
