Low Key

Updated: Jul 8, 2018

In the yin and yang of photography, low key is the complement to high key.

Wildlife images, especially bird images, are usually high key. The even lighting that characterizes this style helps the viewer see detail and appreciate the beauty of the subject.

Low key lighting is more mysterious. It is characterized by dark shadows, intense contrasts and uneven lighting. Although less popular, it can be very effective.

Today, I added a low key section to my portfolio. I hope you enjoy my images!
