Professional Portraits – Low Key Style

I love low key photography!  In any photo the viewer is drawn to the lightest part of the image.  Obviously her face and  smile is the first thing you notice.   Typically low key is meant for more moody type photo’s,  adding  smiles are optional and usually preferred in a business portraits.   Low key is basically black on black or shades or dark.  If you’re thinking of having this kind of photo taken for your next business portrait, I’d like you to look beyond the smile.   Take note it’s important to have separation between the subject and background.  The hair also requires extra light so you can see it.  Specific lighting for glasses is crucial to see your eyes. No one wants  large white glare their glasses.!  If there’s a little then photoshop can alway’s help.    If you’d like to try this kind of photography for your next professional portrait give me a call,  I can help ya!
