I know you carefully compose and process your photos, so I have to ask about the decision to have the highlights bordering on being blown out given it minimizes the visibility of the cobwebs.
Then again, it could be a matter of preference. Still, curious about it.
Good question, E. I can look back on a portfolio of photos going back many years and I can count on one hand the number of “high key” photos. It’s not something I naturally gravitate to and yet I love the look. So I made the decision to see if I could process some files high key and the flower photos are perfect for this look. I know it’s sort of “greeting card” but I like greeting cards.
I really like the soft glow and the purple echoes in the background. Feels like you are surrounded by flowers!
Thanks, Howard. I shot this at the Kent Park arboretum, so I was surrounded by flowers.
Beautiful shot, Ken. High key works well here. Like you, I don’t have a lot of high key shots – I usually prefer darker, more saturated images. But when it works, it works!
It made me wonder how many other techniques I’ve ignored that may be suitable for a variety of images. It’s a problem when your work is based on series and you want to maintain consistency.
It’s very pretty!
