Low key

  1. 1. Recap • Shoot a portrait of each other using the popup flash under exposure technique • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgNOeMS wC-c
  2. 2. Low Key AS Photography
  3. 3. So far you should have… • An overview of 3+ subgenres of commercial photography via page rips and annotation • Chosen 1 of these and continued to research via more page rips etc • Chosen a publication/style to work within • Have identified low, mid and high key set-ups in found images • Made a good start on your (at least) 2 photographers, analysing as usual plus identifying lighting set-ups
  4. 4. Task • Working in small groups we will achieve at least the following 3 set-ups. You will then go on to explore other low-key ideas • Initially you will work with your mobile phone as a light source and then we will add flashes/strobes and/or continuous lights and modifiers/gobo’s • You must note down meta data (including flash power) and create lighting diagrams • This can be used for Task 2
  5. 5. Camera settings with strobe • Sync speed 1/160-1/200 - try to go higher and see what happens (unless you have a fancy camera!) • Aperture controls strobe - start on f.8 • Speed controls ambient • ISO is both but keep low if possible • Hard light comes from small direct light source, the sun is hard! • Soft light comes from broader bigger source, the sun behind clouds becomes soft
  6. 6. Homework • Try some low key sets at home using your phone and a range of different continuous lights. Make sure you start to shoot ‘on theme’ • Continue with Task 1. Lesson 3 will require this nearly finished and will involve class discussion on your chosen artists • Bring a standard head and shoulders portrait of a friend or family member on a USB for lesson 2
