52-week Challenge: week 13

WEEK 13: Portrait: High Key – Expose to the right and create a light, airy high key portrait.

Oops, my bad. For some reason I was more hung up on trying to figure out the concept of “high key photography” versus “high key lighting” and simply exposing to the right (ETTR) than actually looking at the brief in sufficient detail. Anyhow, as usual there’s a lot of highfalutin crap written about high key photography, and I don’t have the interest or time to argue. To me it simply means light tones and no shadows.

I have produced a high key image but not a portrait (of a person). And now the weekend is over my models are no longer available! I will have to try again…
