A 52-Week Photo Journey

Week 44 – #15. High Key


High Key photography is something I have never attempted so I have struggled with this theme. After doing extensive research on the Internet, I learned that it can be accomplished in a studio with lights and a white background or outside under the proper lighting. I elected to try photographing a tulip in my living room against a white background. I don’t know if I accomplished what a professional photographer would refer to as high key; however, I like how it turned out and hope you do too. My lens of choice was the Nikon 100 mm, 2.8 Macro and this photo is straight out of the camera with no enhancements other than a tiny green stroke and just a small amount of sharpening.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
