This past week in class we learned about high and low key lighting techniques in photography. Using the black background and black cover for the table I really wanted to try to get the highlighting effect from the video. Especially since we were using a vase in our still. I think I was able to create a similar effect and mood. The photo with low key lighting has little to no editing done to it.
For the high key lighting, I wanted a simple and clean composition with the apple and camera in the still. The high key lighting shots were my favorite since they came out so clean and bright. I especially like the clean reflection on the table. I also used some of the brush techniques we were shown in Lightroom. I was able to bump the clarity of the reflections as well as retouch a weird spot that showed up in the picture. I just wish there were no shadows!!
