This week in P52.2: FRAMED we are continuing our experiments with tone in our compositions to see what effect and mood we can get. While high key images are created by bright light tones and low key photographs rely on shadowy dark tones, mid key images isolate the mid-level of tone. It may be pleasing rather than dramatic and often better in color. Colors can be complimentary and yet the same key, so although in black and white everything would blend, in color it all pops. One of the issues to keep in mind when playing in mid key is that although consistency of tone can help your subject and their surroundings appear well-aligned, the trick is to make sure your subject doesn't get lost.
Please visit Who We Become which is our year-long collaborative blog project dedicated to composition and artistry. The gallery mosaic is a beautiful way to see all of our images in one place. Please click on the individual images to see a larger version on the artist's website and, in some cases, a series of related images.
