Project 52: Low Key

We’re back!!!  Sydney has been complaining that I’ve neglected her weekly Project 52 appearances on the blog, so this week, with the theme of Low Key – well, I just couldn’t resist. I adore Low Key images. They have to be one of my favorite styles of photography. One technique for low key involves creating drama by using a single light source, in this case…, a giant softbox just to the right of my two subjects – the two-legged one willing, and the four-legged one not so much. Yes, dealing with a less than willing subject can be a challenge, especially when it’s a beloved animal companion like Miss Sydney. It takes a mountain of patience, an instinct for knowing the right sound to make, the coordination to press the shutter button at just the right moment, and when all of that fails, knowing how to do a good head swap in post-processing software.Standard-Poodle-Pet-Photography-Fairfax-VA-Nia-Sydney

Now venture over to check out the next photographer in our web-blog ring:  Elaine Mueller Tweedy at I Got the Shot Photography in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Make sure to keep on clicking through until you land back here! And come back next Friday to see the latest round of images from the group.
