comment Which is the application used for this photo with glow around dark things? I saw many pictures like this on instagram, but nobody answers
You're asking what application was used for these shots so you can avoid it at all costs, right?

sorry, should have stated it needs to be dark if you're going to do it outdoors! The thing about black sheets is they are not 100%, i.e. they reflect some light back. The closer they are the more they reflect back, the further away they are the bigger they must be. However, if you get the background far enough away it doesn't have to be black (or a sheet), hence the naturally surroundings will show up jet black, provided they are far enough away.

comment Is there a flash system that will work with for both Canon 5DMKIII and Sony A7MKII?
I pretty sure none exist with TTL functionality (camera/flash communication protocols differ), in any case I don't think you'd want to use the same flash for both a 5D and A7, I have used a Canon 430EX on an A7 (in manual mode) and it balances very badly, plus the whole thing will hang upside down if you use the neck strap. I think you need a smaller, lighter flash for an A7, thus you should get one that is compatible with Sony TTL (I haven't looked into specific options yet).
