This little guy has been my preferred photography model since day one.
The concept I heard in the Photography course I’m taking on Wednesdays is quite interesting – I had seen “Low Key” and “Hight Key” pictures before and wondered how were they done?
- My super tiny Model
- A nice stone I was going to use as a background
- A headlamp as Light 1
- An iPod as Light 2
- A blue cleaning cloth as Tone 1
- And a yellowish cloth as Tone 2
The one above is the photo that I like the most, but I did try a few other combinations too – see below.
Light 1 was a strong one that I had to cover a bit so it would only hit the Model partially from behind.
Light 2 was the iPod covered with the blue cloth just painting the background rock with the first tone. Look at the other options I got by painting with the yellowish cloth covering the 2nd light. One with no painting at all, one with a very under-exposed shot, and a black & white version too.
Later, I did some light editting in Lightroom to get the different tones at the levels I liked.
