The “key” of an image describes its overall tonal range—including the subject, background, clothes and props. In low key images, these tones are primarily dark. While simple in theory, creating this style presents some unique challenges. Fortunately, the techniques in this book will show you how to best meet these challenges to create images your clients will love.
Tips for creating a studio setup, using window light, and employing natural light on location are all covered in detail. Readers will also learn how to meter accurately for perfect exposures, select an ideal background, and compose low key images.
