I'm particularly proud of this last image's set up. The dark background is just the view out of my window. A long lens was used to make sure the view of the great outdoors was restricted, allowing me to choose darker bits of the outdoor scene to be my background.

Indoors, a flash was directed upwards and fired at full power, ensuring that the brightness difference between the subject and the outdoors was as large as possible. With the exposure adjusted for the indoor lighting, the outdoor lights were just barely enough to register on the sensor, resulting in a mostly black background.

One thing that you can try is placing a mirror behind and below the louse so that you get some form of rim light which is quite cool, like how we were told to outline those fucking pictures before we colour them.
