Black and White Sunday – Low Key

This week, Paula has chosen a topic right up my street! But I am yet to create images that I am really happy with.. Here are a couple of examples

Low key in the street:

This musician was a little way inside a tunnel, so the light hit just one side of him, enabling me to get a chiaroscuro effect. I used to hate shadows, I don’t anymore!

And a bit of beauty in decay:

I have previously published a high key example of this very tulip.

More low key at Paula’s blog here.

  1. Very nice set of low key images…each has its appeal.

  2. That tulip is stunning. Great job, Sue.
    Ω

  3. I love the low key lighting, the light and shadow adds such drama to these shots!

  4. Me too, as I age I become more shadowy 😉 Both examples are interesting, Sue. The first one even more because it is a less typical capture for you. Thank you for joining in.

  5. A real beauty of a shot here – a perfect execution of a monochrome image.

  6. Good stuff Sue. I need to practice more – it’s very appealing

  7. So much to see in the photo of the musician and monochrome makes you look.

  8. I agree with Lucid Gypsy on the musician photo. They are both excellent, but the musician is sooo great.in low key B&W

  9. What completely different images. The musician is wonderfully moody: did you pose him? And the tulip so graceful and defined – and shadow free.

      I didn’t pose the musician, just asked his permission to take some images, then walked around to get the right angle. As for the tulip, that was taken in natural light (from the side) with a backdrop of black card….

  10. Not shadow free at all, just too subtle for my first eye.

  11. The exposure on the saxophone is just right, Sue. Great work!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  12. Don’t care if it’s high key or low key- I love the tulip! Soon be tulip time 🙂

  13. Great low key images, Sue. I would have loved to hear that sax. 🙂

  14. just beautiful in their simplicity. I can hear the music!

  15. I love the composition of the musician, the lighting is perfect, just highlighting the important parts. Great photo. I bet the fellow was very pleased with it too.

    • Sue

      Well, I showed him, he was impressed and gave me his email address so I could send him a copy – never heard a thing! Hope he got it OK….

  16. great shots, love the simplicity of the tulip, beautiful!

  17. Beautiful { Officially in love with your blog} 😉

  18. Beautiful shots Sue, shadows can be so revealing. Is this our shared tunnel? Such a happening part of town now isn’t it and love the tulip!
