High Key


Portrait of a Woman


Another portrait re-worked a wee bit for High Key next week with Camera Club #1. I've also taken this one to monochrome, so I might have two entries for Colour, and two for Monochrome. As for the 'Creative' category, which is for 'non-photo-realistic work', I am not sure I understand the club stance on this any longer. So I'm just watching that group for a bit.

I don't know how worthwhile my opinion is because I know nothing about technology with photography - but I really like this one. I love her toes! A

I really like the composition, but it lacks something in crispness and contrast. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think the lady in red was much more interesting.

But I do like your photography, I really do.

High Key will lack contrast, by definition. It should still retain what I think you mean by 'crispness'. The primary subject should still be properly lit & exposed, with the background appearing (but not necessarily actually) overexposed.

And thank you!
