Strange Fruit

I'm leading the next camera club session on 'High Key Photography' and needed to set up a shot in my 'studio' to show this genre doesn't really need expensive lights and kit.

This isn't sooc as part of my presentation is to show the workflow of setting up the scene, camera settings, histogram and to show a before and after dodging and cropping edit. Vikki, get me volunteering to do high-key!!!

Wish me luck, I'd much rather be doing a session on low-key!!

Also entered for song title - a song by Billie Holliday
I would hazard a guess that the middle ones are the real ones
Really cool lighting and high key effect

"Experts" can be very annoying and often aim their talks way over the heads of their audience! I'm backing you rather than the expert!!
January 25th, 2020  
@robz Me too, backing you.
January 25th, 2020  
@robz @shutterbug49 I'll let you know next week how it went!!! Thanks for your moral support
