Yes, that is kind of what I would like. Just put it in a different way.
I have seen shots of a flower where the background is black and it make the plant stand out. But this was done with lighting and aperture. I also saw this with a of my grand-daughter taken with an iPhone and just normal lighting.

Thanks for the response, but he (which would be me) is not a subscriber.

Thanks for the tip (Smart phone section) and I have found a link that I am now investigating.

Thanks, but was hoping to do it "in house" ie on the phone without having to move pictures back and forth.

Thanks for your response but I am looking for an App for Android phone to be bale to do this on the phone.
It should be available and I have a few leads to follow up.
Thanks,

Does anyone know of an easy App for an Android phone that will make the background black. I saw someone use this feature on an I-phone and it makes the foreground "pop"
Mainly with portraits. I could use my m4/3 or my Sony 6000 but often the phone is the camera that I have with me
Thanks,
Arthur.

Thanks, I have already put in bids on 2 cameras.
I was hoping some UHH members would come up with something.

I want to collect older film cameras, one of each type. They don't have to be in working condition.
I already have 2 35mm, a Nikon F801and a Pentax ME Super.
I am thinking of the following:-
Twin lens reflex, Rangefinder, 1/2 frame, Collapsible, box camera, Large format, Pinhole, & Sub-minature (110 format).
Any Hoggers out there who can help. I realize that film will not be available but that is not the purpose, I just want to display them.

The Parkes Radio telescope is 210 foot diameter, located near the town of Parkes, New South Wales, Australia. It was built in 1961

The selection of the Parkes telescope site took several years and had to fulfil key technical requirements, such as a stable geology and low radio-frequency interference.
It took three years to design and two years to build the telescope; it was officially opened on 31 October 1961.
The moving part of the telescope, above the concrete tower, weighs 1000 tonnes – more than two Boeing 747 aircraft. This moving part is not fixed to the top of the tower but just sits on it.
The telescope only receives signals from space, but never sends them.
Because the large surface of the dish catches the wind like a sail, the telescope must be 'stowed' (pointed directly up) when the wind speed exceeds 35 kilometres an hour.
It can detect radio waves from seven millimetres to four metres long, and be pointed with an accuracy of better than 11 arcseconds – about the width of a finger seen 150 metres away.
The telescope operates twenty four hours per day, through rain and cloud.
About 85 per cent of all time each year is scheduled for observing. Less than five per cent of that time is lost because of high winds or equipment problems. Most of the rest of the time each year is used for maintenance and testing.
Its large dish surface makes the Parkes telescope very sensitive and it is ideally suited to finding pulsars, rapidly spinning neutron stars the size of a small city. Almost half of the more than 2000 known pulsars have been found using the Parkes telescope.
