The hallmarks of high key are images that convey a sense of energy, lightness, and happiness due to the high proportion of whiteness in relation to the amount of mid and dark tones (shadows) present in the image. A distraction-free background for a (usually) well detailed subject is also a hallmark of high key images. The high key style is appropriate for all photographic categories including landscape, nature, wildlife, portraits, and still life.
This two-session class will include classroom review and practical exercises in environment and subject selection; in-camera manipulation; and post-processing techniques to create images in a high key style. The first session will also include a participant exercise with instructors’ assistance. A slide review presentation of your images created the first session and on your own will be shared during the second session.
Instructors: Pam Careau and Margaret Maione
Experience Level: Intermediate and Advanced
Equipment: This class is best suited for cameras that have the ability for manual exposure adjustment/manipulation.
