To get pictures with a black background, I shoot at F22 and 1/250 to 1/500 sec. with my R1C1 ring flash.

And I look for shots that do not have any clutter within the first foot or two of the background.

And when I edit the photos in Photoshop, I select the background with the magic wand and then turn down the brightness and contrast of the selected background.
