Create a seamless black background with just a flash

You don’t need a photo studio to have a seamless background in your photographs. For this project I just had one speedlight. My settings were ISO was 100, f/11, 1/200. I wanted to recreate the iconic hands of The Creation of Adam so I lit the hands from the left top corner using a speedlight with the flash bender and a diffuser.

This is how the second picture looked. My settings were ISO was 100, f/16, 1/200. I set up the fruit on my desk in the classroom and a speedlite using the flash bender and a diffuser over it. I decreased the exposure of the lighter areas of the table in post.
