High Key and Low Key

IMG_0752 IMG_0755I decided to take two photos in my home.  The first is of a plant in my living room.  The second is of a stool in the corner of my dining room.  I chose to let the plant represent a high key picture, as there is a lot of light in the picture.  The stool represents a low key picture as it sits in the dark corner of a room.

I placed the plant in a well lit area to give a joyous mood, as opposed to it being in a dark area, where it would feel depressing.  I felt that it also signified a sense of growth, as naturally, plants need light to grow.  The stool in the corner gives a feeling of loneliness and neglect.  It’s there in the dark, with nobody to sit on it.
