High Key studio work 81/365

My beautiful daughter was a willing model . . .
So, did I get high key?

Don'tcha love those willing models!?

I had always seen/read/heard that high key portraits involved the model wearing light colors against the white background, and would be slightly overexposed. But I can't find any corroborating articles now. Maybe high key is another one of those things that changes with the times?

Great shots! I always understood high key to be an oversxposed background. Can't remember seeing them wearing black before, but I don't think that matters?

I think they are amazing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

High-key lighting is a style of lighting for film, television, or photography that aims to reduce the lighting ratio present in the scene. This was originally done partly for technological reasons, since early film and television did not deal well with high contrast ratios, but now is used to suggest an upbeat mood. It is often used in sitcoms and comedies. High-key lighting is usually quite homogeneous and free from dark shadows.

Perfect! I love #2 too. You got it.

Kudos to you and your mentor.
