High & Low Key Lighting for Still Life

During this class session, we were playing with high and low key lighting. High key lighting as you can see in the two pictures has zero shadows and it is more intense. While, low key lighting is all about the shadows and the light is not so intense. Personally, I like low key lighting because it creates more intensity, like it is more dramatic. Color gels with low key light creates an even more intense shot, gives it a cool effect, especially because my still life composition contains a skull.
