What??? Had to google this one and found this great article that explains it better than I can.
High key photography uses unnaturally bright lighting to blow out most or all harsh shadows in an image. High key methods were originally developed as a solution to screens that couldn’t properly display high contrast ratios, but has developed into more of a stylistic choice. High key images usually convey a positive or upbeat tone. This method is perfect for a subject that is funny, lighthearted or beautiful.
Once I saw the definition I knew that Stella was going to be my subject because she is so funny, lighthearted and beautiful and I was hoping to capture that in a picture for this week's scavenger hunt. What do you think.....did I pull it off? I don't think it's perfect but for my first time not so bad. Isn't Stella looking more and more beautiful since we rescued her 3 months ago? We think so!
I decided to try another diptych this week after learning about this a couple of weeks ago.
Picture on the left is my side of the bed including a nightstand, favorite lamp, and picture of Tanner as a pup.
Picture on the right is the mirror above our bed which shows the other side of the bedroom.
It's a small room and thought this would show the room the best.
Our bedroom is my sanctuary and I love the relaxing feel it has to it.
On that note it's almost time to go to bed and cozy up in my big king sized bed.
This is one of the many shells I found when we were in Cozumel in December 2009. This one is one of my favorites and I love how teeny, tiny it is and you can see by the size of the other shell behind it that it is truly teeny tiny. I wanted to photograph a tiny bird my hubby got from his grandmother but I can't find it for the life of me. Maybe next time. Little blue baby bird where are you?
Off in the Distance
This one was hard for me because I tend to like to shoot objects close up and not from a distance. I went for a car ride with my hubby and found this windmill off in the distance. Doesn't this prompt remind you of the song from Bette Midler? No, well I kept singing it all day while working on the scavenger hunt.
I love stripes! And when I find a shirt I like, I but them in multiple colors. Can you tell?
My favorite is the 3rd from the right, cream and gray stripes!
