CSLR Challenge 123 - Low Key (Hosted by CJ)

Dear Fellow Challengers,

The topic this time is Low Key.

Using natural or studio lighting techniques, create a low key image which accentuates the contours of an object and throws other areas into shade. "In a low-key image, dark tones dominate the photograph. Small, bright highlights punctuate the shadow areas, creating the characteristic mood of a low-key image. The position of the light source for a typical low-key image is behind the subject or behind and off to one side, creating deep shadows."
