Day 21 | Low Key

Day 21 | Low Key

Theres a few photography sites I follow to learn and get inspiration from other photographers. One of this sites is called Dogwood 52 weeks photography challenge. I started some of the challenge last year, but didn't even get close to. Completing it. The 2017 has a new list of challenges and it seems much harder than the previous year.

One of the topic is titled Low Key. I looked and studied the photos others posted and majority seems to focus on people. Does it have to be of a person? they also mentioned that the histogram settings has to be predominantly in the left..... Say what now?!?

Then I decided to Google "using Low Key in photography" and "what does it mean in photography". Here's one of the answers on what it says....

"Low-key photography is a terrific challenge for both the novice and the experienced. ... A low-key image is one that contains predominantly dark tones and colours. Like high-key images, they convey atmosphere and mood. But where a high-key image feels airy and light, a low-key is usually dramatic and full of mystery."

Great! It didn't say it had to be of people. Grabbing my trusty camera, I took photos of the flowers in my room. After 20 shots, I decided to settle on this one. I have both b&w and coloured photos. B&W seems to have a more dramatic effect.

Very nice low-key shot.
