Contest Corner Challenge #72: High Key

Title: Contest Corner Challenge #72: High Key

Start Date: Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010.

End Date: Thursday, March 18th, 2010.

Sponsor: Mpix.com - an online digital imaging lab for the both the professional photographer and the advanced amateur. With an internet connection, a digital file and a credit card, photographers can upload their images, order professional photographic prints ranging from mini wallets to 24x36, specialty photographic items, and press products. Use coupon code "photoc09" to receive 10% off your next order.

Prizes: If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a 24" x 36" gallery wrap (a $170 value). If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a 16" x 24" gallery wrap (a $100 value).

Description: 'High Key Photography' is all about using lighting that produces tones that fall mostly between white and gray, with very few dark tones. Though you will find many photographers calling high contrast and overexposed images 'high key,' these are not actually high key images. To create a 'high key' photograph, you don't have to put more light onto the background than what is on the subject, but for a pure white background you will need to. Your challenge, obviously, is to take a 'high key' photograph. If you need some help or clarification on setting up your photograph, feel free to ask and discuss in this thread.



CCC Guidelines. To read the guidelines, please visit here: Contest Corner Rules & Regulations. Please be sure to read these guidelines carefully before submitting your photograph. Any photographs submitted that do not adhere to these guidelines will be rejected and sent back.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #72: High Key

I'm up for it...I thought high key was overexposed and high contrast. Tutorials and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Want to comment on the sponsor-Mpix. I'm testing the ground for potential sales-I ordered various photo sizes, colors, the kind of paper (with/out luster), time response and have to say I was well pleased with the results...
