Photos- “Low Key”

Posted on

The challenge in the photo group this week was a “Low Key” shot (also known as “film noir).

I am LOVING the way these came out! I was having so much fun with this that Voodoo eventually fell asleep and I got even more shots πŸ™‚

I had to use a flashlight as my light source in the fully dark room and I needed a slow shutter to compensate for the other settings so that definitely added a challenge since any slight movement caused blur. Thankfully he can play statue pretty well :-) Definitely easier once he fell asleep though! I was then able to use a 2 sec shutter and “light paint” him, which produced my second favorite photo (laying on his side).

I had to get a few shots of Dazzle too!

It was hard to choose but this one was my favorite!:

This is a close second, only because I love Voodoo’s eyes and I can’t see them when he’s sleeping πŸ™‚

He definitely got bored with the photo shoot!

This was before I figured out I could “paint with light” using a longer shutter speed. He wasn’t quite asleep in this shot.

If the focus in this one was sharper, it would be my favorite. But the focus is just a bit off. While I wouldn’t want to blow it up and put it on a canvas due to it’s focus issues, it looks great online at the smaller size πŸ™‚

Dazzle wanted to know what was going on behind the closed door, so he got to play too. Since he knows how to “rest” his head on cue, his was a quick session.

I love his eyes in this one! He’s such a pro at being my photo subject πŸ™‚
