High-Key, Wide-Angle Portraits
Posted By: sjl7678, 02-05-2008, 10:42 AM

Today was my first time trying the high-key, wide-angle combination. I'm pretty happy with the results, but advice is always appreciated.

The third shot is the winner of the lot. The composition and expression work so well with a wide angle lens.

btw.... I would not consider these high-key shots... the exposure seems quite natural.

Very nice lighting! Not so keen on the cropping though, a tad too tight for me but others will disagree!
Also these aren't exactly high key. This is a example of a high key photo.

I like the lighting and skin rendering from the shots. Not really high key though. But she is definitely comfortable with you
