Perfect High Key Images

posted on 24th of december, 2011

I have put up a New Article on my Personal Blog
Lighting The Pixel Perfect Isolation about how to set up and control your lighting in the studio to obtain a perfect white background.

It is not a light read but if you are interested in creating images such as these for stock then I think you will find the techniques and lighting chart provided useful. I would post it all here but to be honest it is a 5 pages read plus illustration and due to the limitations of image posting in the DT Blog I cant make it work here.

Sorry abt that--I did not mean for DT to do that, nor did i report it other then to you, here.
Its just every one (you & I) is entitled to his/her view on nudity.
i would never think of sensoring anyones creativity.
In particular you...i love your style/protfolio!!!
Just a heads up would have been appreciated.
ppl are diffrent, some think its ok some not.

Sorry about that zen pix, I guess I simply don't think about it as I see nudity as natural. I find it strange that everyone wants to be warned for nudity cause a kid might see a boobie but graphic violence goes unmentioned everyday. Any wise it looks like dt striped my link from this now so it really doesn't matter anymore

Went to read your artical and was hit by nudity!

Please let people know of the nudity.

I had kids with me at the time!

Thank you zen pix I meant exactly what I said but thanks for thinking for me. Yes they are high key photos as there is a predominance of high tones in them. The lighting ratios used equal and exceed 3:1 and as such would fall under the heading of high key and yes they are also isolations and if you had actually read the article you would know thati define them as such.

perfectly exposed picures and a nice and huge portfolio you have.

but these are not "High Key" images are they?

My understanding as high key is when highlights in the photo are just about blown out, intentinaly.

You prob ment to say isolated or blown out background.
