Lighting – High Key What is high key lighting?• reduces the lighting ratio present in the scene• High key photos are very bright• Doesn’t have very strong contrasts
Lighting – Low Key What is low key lighting?• Creates dark looking photographs• Low-key lighting often uses only one key light, optionally controlled with a fill light or a simple reflector• Creates strong contrast• Low key lighting describes any scene with a high lighting ratio,
Composition – rule of thirds/powerpoints Rule of thirds• It is the theory that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines•• Also the idea that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections•• Purpose is to make photographs look more pleasant to view•
Composition – rule of thirds/powerpoints Powerpoints• Similar to rule of thirds• its the 4 axis points where the horizontal and vertical lines join.• The theory is that objects positioned in the powerpoints create the finest composition•

What Does Reflecting light Mean?• Reflection is defined as the bouncing back of a ray of light into the same medium, when it strikes a surface.••••• It occurs on almost all surfaces - some reflect a major fraction of the incident light.•• Others reflect only a part of it, while absorb the rest.
