52 in 2015 Week 28 High Key

I’ve never been a fan of High Key Photography. To me it just seems over-exposed. But this weeks challenge is High Key so I thought I better give it a proper go.

One can consider/define the over exposed and under exposed portraits as High Key and Low Key Portraits. – Lakshman Iyer

The first photograph was easy, taken against a grey background of the sky. With a bit of work in Adobe Lightroom I was able to lighten up the background a bit.

Now the next one is completely different. These are flowers growing in my garden. To get the background I stuck a piece of white paper behind the flower before taking the photograph. Nothing fancy, but it works. With the sun almost overhead no shadows to worry about either.

That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoyed the photographs – Mike

      Needs must. The background was just too distracting. Only problem a bit windy outside so I had to time when I pressed the shutter.

    There are some images I have seen in high key that are amazing, but I have never been able to make it work to my satisfaction

      Not my cup of tea either Jo. I just don’t see the point, but maybe that’s because I’m mainly a landscape photographer
