Show me Low key!

posted May 29th, 2012
I have just now discovered low key photography and i am in love! Had a play for this weeks theme 'temptation' and below is my results. I am certainly gonna try some more of these. Takes a lot of fiddling and shifting position to get just the right lighting but when you do the shots are awesome! Please show me your low key shots, i would love to take a look!

I'm still not 100% sure what low key is but I really enjoyed doing these shots & think they came close:

Fantastic shots!

@sjodell That certainly is low key! It is basically low lighting that highlights a subject and creates a dramatic effect, so yours are perfect = ]

I wanted to do a low key shot or two, but with closing up a school year, was too busy to think! I shot this in Dec. Is this "low key?"

I'm just discovering low-key as well! It's definitely out of my comfort zone (of flowers, soft light and pastels). =)

Here's the one I did for last week's theme.

I have a whole series I've made recently while almost unable to see with a persistent blinding headache, exploring how isolating it is. Here are some of my shots;

I'm not sure I got the concept quite right. Most descriptive explanations of low key only mention single light source and the use of shadow. What seems to be implied, and holds true with all the examples I've seen is that the light should be "low" in intensity as such. Mine used the FULL BLASTING LIGHT AND HEAT OF THE SUN!

Here are two of mine from last week. I think they both qualify as low key.

one of the only ones Ive ever tried. Love how these shots look though so I should try again.

This is one taken at a church


This one, though coming from a single light source, is very very bright. so I'm not really sure if it's still low key

I had never tried it before the theme challenge and I ended up getting a shot that I love. I'm going to try more low-key in the future.....

Low key was a new term for me this week as well. I kinda had fun playing around with it.
