No cockadoodledoo talk here.if i do not mind the TCSS, i would have started the thread in kopitiam.

since there are so many days for CNY, i'm thinking of shooting some low key portraits.
as my studio knowlegde is very limited,
i need themes and ideas to go about doing it.
please throw me some suggestions, and poses.

TIA.:)

i dunno how to shoot IR and i'm not interested in IR images other than for landscapes.

low key= dark,dim lightings?:dunno:
Low key does not just refer to lighting. It is the background and clothing colour too.

I hope you don't mean underexposing by the "dim" lighting. It's more on playing with the lighting ratios.
