Personality Thursday  – Portraits In High Key
For those wondering what high-key means, according to Wikipedia;
“High-key lighting is a style of lighting for film, television, or photography that aims to reduce the lighting ratio present in the scene….High-key lighting is usually quite homogeneous and free from dark shadows. The terminology comes from the key light (main light).”
The other week at oneTouch we explored High Key photography and this is what I managed to come up with as modeled by oneToucher’s Nyingez, Njeri, Skubi & Faith. We went with a large soft box light as the background to give a stark white back and even spread light from behind the models heads. This is the reason I chose to go for head shots to show the detail and light play.
In other news. A friend of mine and of many of you who read this, Ng’endo needs our help. Her mom needs to go through knee replacement surgery. Now I don’t need to know what that means to know that it is serious. You can read about it on her blog here and kindly help in any way you can. It’s a call to action. Also follow @teambritish on twitter and help reach the goal of 500,000ksh. In connection to this, the 90th and 120th contributor get a free photo shoot from me. Get donating people. Thanks
