Low Key Studio Lighting

Today we experimented with low-key lighting, using a white backdrop, model on a stool and a single dedo continuous light. We each had a turn using our own cameras and practised taking photos of our classmates. Because of the low light we had to use high ISO and everyone had varying settings because of different camera models and their capabilities.

My camera settings are shown underneath each image – unedited, they would benefit from sharpening and noise reduction. With more time I would experiment with different light angles to minimise the harsh shadows.
