2019 P52: Week 50 — Low Key Photography

Low-key is a term that describes images that are dark and contain few highlight areas. The main use of low-key lighting as a creative visual tool is to accentuate the shape and contour of a subject, by leaving additional lighting (fill light, for example) at a bare minimum, or omitting it entirely. Low-key lighting is also often used in cinema to create dramatic, moody effects, in many types of films from romance to horror.

In contrast to last week’s prompt, low key photography is all about the dark and moody shots! I feel like I more naturally gravitate to these kind of photos, and have had several over the course of the year that I could have pulled from the archives for this week. But I shot a new one, because that’s what we do!
