Im not sure this falls into typography specifically, anyways working on a site of new work, trying to figure how to place my work on a black drop, is it photographed, photoshoped?

A cropped photo, Photoshopped. You can still see the cropping line on the upper side of the book.

To me it looks like it was originally photographed against a black background, but the background came out as a very dark gray (rather than black) in the photo, so he darkened the background further in Photoshop. However he didn't take the time to create a path around the exact outline of the book, so there are places where the original, not-quite-black background still shows.

If you're trying to take similar photos you might want to take some test shots first using different exposures.
