Thread: High-Key

    Default High-Key

    C&C welcome.

    I've searched this forum for tips & techniques to no avail.

    These are my first two attempts at HK - any thoughts?

    WOW M@ndy!

    The hibiscus is superb! great texturing on the petals and buds.

    And your work on the curves - did u use curves? - for the spiral is awesome. The black is black and white is white and I can feel textural details in the dark and bright areas.

    How did you learn to do B&W like this?! GREAT! :-)

    I am loving these two pictures, although they are not really high-key. Thanks for sharing.

    I do prefer the second picture, as the first picture doesn't really draw me in.

    There is a bit too much of the greys for a HK work, but other than that, it seems quite well done.

    Thanks for your comments (& sorry I posted more than 1 photo).

    I have a better understanding of what pure HK should look like.

    FYI: I followed the HK technique, but then re-introduced the original image to return detail in the darks.

    Espion, I've replied via flickr. May be I should add the flower was butter-yellow white and the stair case walls were once white, so not much conversion was necessary!

    Keep those comments coming!
