Custom Filter Cat: Darcy

I experimented this week by making a custom filter from a plastic insert sheet, some markers, and an old filter ring. High ISO for grain. See below.

We're looking at high-key photography this week. Simply put, it's high contrast, brightly lit photographs usually with a lack of shadows or background detail. High-key shots although usually most often seen in portraiture can be used in many other genres of photography - street, landscapes, food (especially on white plates), product and abstract shots to name but a few. The idea is to eliminate background clutter and distraction entirely so as to allow the viewer to be drawn in to the main subject of your photograph. Lighting and angles are crucial to this form of photography and hopefully, this will be a good training exercise of sorts for many of us. Although we can overexpose the image, that's not necessarily the best way to get a high-key shot. Play with the composition, lighting and depth of field to achieve that high-key look. Consider times of day and outdoor locations that are normally too harsh with the available light to make your shots work for this challenge.
