2022 10 LowKey 1069 marco ciavolino post

Inviting Warmth of Starbucks on a Cold, Rainy, Night in Atlanta

This was a welcome respite from the rain and wind, and chance to spend another paycheck on a refresher.


This week, we're going low, or at least shooting Low Key. A low key image is going to have shadows, dark tones and, in a lot of cases, the subject of the photo is the only thing shown off with your lighting. And speaking of light, there is usually only one source of lighting, but be careful because you could shoot with one light source and still not be hitting a true low key photo. Be sure to check the tips and tuts for specifics. A low key shot draws the viewer's eye to your subject with no distractions. Think drama, intensity, and moodiness. If you’re thinking low key is only for studio work, think again! You’ll see in our examples great low key photos of wildlife, architecture, even landscapes. Low key photography doesn't mean it has to be a black and white photo. It’s the overall dark you find in the tones, not the absence of color, though that works, too. The “key” to low key? Exposure control and light fall-off top the list. Just underexposing will be "key" here. An image that's solely underexposed may not meet the brief of also being a low-key image. Look for detail everywhere, except maybe in your darkest spots.
