Challenge #25 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
In portraiture, the term "high-key" refers to an image with lots and lots of light. It's not about overexposing the image, but about washing the subject in a light that all but eliminates shadows. High-key portraits typically present white (or light colored) backgrounds. Demonstrate your understanding of high-key portraiture. Note Additional rules.

Firuza is a computer security specialist and a colleague. With two other colleagues, a project manager (who's doubling up as apprentice make-up artist) and an HR officer (doubling up as photographer) we organise practise photoshoots to discover the joys and pains of studio lighting, propping, make-up-ing... This picture is about the first I took with my new 1DS MII. Best seen in full size.
