POTD Day 151: Learning "Low Key"

This photo is one from a set where I was playing around with "low key" (underexposed/dark/dramatic/mysterious). I had the light behind me and smallfry was in a dark room. I had her put that blanket around her since she was in her pajamas is difficult to get great shots regularly of her since she plays hard and doesn't always want to look "just so" for photoshoots by her mama. So.. I don't have any studio lights but want to figure out how to make it look like the light is coming from above and looking down..this light WAS overhead lighting but it still looked like it was coming from below her...anyway, it is a start with learning how to create that effect!


  1. I wish I could help you, but I still have plenty to lear about photography :)

  2. I think you did good. I am still learning as well.. Alot of my photography is try try again lol sometimes stuff works.. most time not so much :P
