High Key

The Theme for Camera Club #1 Meeting, next week, is High Key.

High Key Rocks


High Key is defined as a uniform lighting pattern with very little modeling; it is exemplified with bright, often 'blown out' or overexposed backgrounds and properly exposed primary subjects. It was often used in early television, when the cameras did not cope well with high contrast differences. ETA: Another Definition: High contrast with mostly highlights & little shadow detail.


It is still used frequently for various purposes. The name comes from the main light (key light) in a lighting set up. Since this is the theme, I'm going to post several items which I'm considering entering this round. Then I'll let y'all know how your responses stack up to the On-Site Judge. That is, of course, if the score sheets are published in a timely manner... I'm still waiting for Augusts to be posted.

And now, the 'judging'...
