Day #116 @ Photography Project 365

Now, since the positive-exposure-compensation-on-white-background trick worked so well for me, I decided to try the opposite: negative-exposure-compensation-on-black-background.

How did it turn out? In two words: very well.

I looked around for anything that would serve as a good black backdrop and finally settled for the cover of a box that I got from IKEA. Actually, the cover did not have a very deep black tone, thanks to the dust that has been accumulating over time. However, by dialing exposure compensation one step down (-1EV), I was able to push the pixels into "pure black" category.
