As for the images you see here: they are two attempts of mine to produce images with a black background. I happen to particularly like the one with he birthday cake, don't ask me why :). The other one was totally improvised and I think you can tell that! :).
Isolated on whate sell much better, unles there is an obvious reason to isolate on black (like you are shooting something white), I would use white to isolate. They are the old standby. I have been leaning more towards situational images, so I have retired my white background for a while.
