Good day everyone,

Does anyone have any advice?

When I've done something like this with flash photography, I get my settings to where they need to be to black everything out without light, and then get the light where I need it to be to just hit the areas I want. So, in the case of flash, I may power it all the way down and then flag it off to not hit anything else but the subject.

I also didn't diffuse to make sure it didn't go anywhere I couldn't control (didn't flag on all sides, just the side closest to the background.

Probably helps if you have a bigger space to work with too, I was in a small room doing that.

Haven't done this for motion, but I would go with similar tactics.
