High Key 2

By Sone  
This is my improvement on my previous post of high key. Is it better ?? I used a white reflector this time to make the shadows a bit less visible. I have no exif data at the moment, so please bear with me, I will add it some time soon. Thank u *

Hi Sone.
Looks a little underexposed for high key to me. I have made adjustments and uploaded to Modification.

Heres a load of information on high key from EPZ tutorials:

I think the essential aspect is to have a very bright white image with only essential details visible.

I will try a mod also. It might be something that you would depend on post processing for, as it may be difficult, without a lot of light to do it at the time of shooting, You need to overexposue quite a bit, so that either slower speed. wider aperture, higher ISO, or more light, or all of the above.

It's not high key. There is also a very warm colour cast resulting from quite a lot of under exposure. You will never achieve high key with under exposure.
