16/02/2013 – Low Key Lighting Portrait


To quote arguably the best comedy franchise ever……”And now for something completely different!”

I found this tutorial on YouTube for a Low Key Portrait utilising an off camera flash and thought I had to give it a try, and I have to say I am really amazed by how well it came out!  There are a couple of small changes that I would make but on the whole I am really happy.  My partner was not to impressed that she had to sit staring at my flash though!

The part that amazed me about this image is that it was taken middle of the day in quite a bright room against a white wall!!!

If you’ve never tried a photo like this it is shockingly easy and I would really recommend checking the tutorial out!
