    Hmmm...searching for a decent definition...


    High-key Photo
    Photo whose most important details appear in the highlights

    High key subjects concentrate on the lighter tones, using subject matter that is white or pale tones, and using flat overall lighting to avoid shadows.

    High key is often used to portray a delicate or feminine intention. Most high key pictures contain small areas of dark tones - for example in the iris of the eyes in a portrait; without a small dark or black area high key effects can appear too washed out or insipid.

    And there was a photo nominated in last months POTM that describes this...I'll find it and link you to it so you can see an example...

    A new assignment, yay! A new assignment!
    We had to go through all of last week without one!
    (Though I forgot to post my "Get Low" pic.... oops! :oops: - must do that NOW, asap!)

    (You don't know how long it took me to get behind the meaning of abbreviations and acronyms such as awol, asap, dof, pov, umo, fyi, etc ;) )

    :mrgreen:

    You can't know what "umo" means, :biggrin:, for that is a typo!
    Should have been "imo".
    "In my opinion" --- and I shall soon try to persuade my daughter into a photo session here, with my given living room lights and see what I can produce...
