HIGH KEY BLACK AND WHITES

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 17 july 2016

These beautiful black and whites could have been realised with a simple flashgun and higher ISO but I wanted sharp images and since I had huge amounts of light handy, I decided to do some high key with what was available.

I hope my friend Sara won’t hold any grudge against me for saying it : she had a short night and wasn’t very fresh that morning.
Her face looked tired and she could have just fallen asleep on the spot !

My primary intention was to shoot some long exposures but something went wrong and I didn’t do what I wanted at all.
One has to bounce back and that’s more or less the easiest way I had to make her beautiful and sharp that day !

Light ! High key is the right way to go when you want to naturally clean any blemishes, any tired eyes, and make what matters pop out of the image.
For that matter black and white often emphasises the effect but natural skin colours also work as I will show in the next post.

Right now I am stuck with some cream in my right eye, nothing too bad but bad enough to annoy me, and focusing on anything is very tiresome.
I will stop this post right there I think.

Oh just to precise, these were shot with my favorite lens of all times the 85mm f1.4 opened at 1.6 on Nikon D4s with hundreds of watts of light (not even in HSS).
