06 lis classes in the studio – high key technique as a tool in visual communication
This technique is mainly used for photography of bright objects, e.g. fair skinned people, underwear, white flowers or when intending to emphasize the delicacy of the object, the calmness of the moment of shooting. It is important in this technique to choose the lighting and exposure time so that the background is bright, the object away from it enough that the shadows are invisible to the camera. The lighting should be strong and at the same time most diffused – preferably directed in the opposite direction from the photographed object. The negative should have high optical density and be abundantly exposed – almost to the limits of overexposure.
