High Key-Low Key 1

I enjoy finding objects that work well with over-exposure but I'm usually working in color so it was an additional challenge to find objects that would also translate well to black and white.
love this one - fav

You did so well! High key, yet you didn't blow out the details in the glass!

Well done! Love your lighting too!

I agree. These worked well as subjects. I like how the patterns on the lighter pieces are still visible.

Many thanks to one and all for the views, great comments and favs! I guess I should have included how I achieved this shot. The glass sits on the sill of my front window which gets the afternoon sun. So I purposely took the picture in the morning so that the light was softer. After reading all those articles to post with the weekly instructions one thing stayed in my head- set the camera 2 to 3 stops above the proper setting to achieve the high-key look. That erased everything in the background and left the glass in the picture. I made sure it was sharp and took the shot. I converted the picture to black and white in the computer after making sure I had a good amount of contrast between the three pieces and adding a little vibrance. And there you have it! Thanks again for stopping by!
