My girlfriend - a first high key attempt
Oct 12, 2011


recently I tried my luck taking pictures of my girlfriend at home - in a pretty crowded bed room, using two halogen uplighters and a reflector (plus my Pentax K-r and Tamron 17-50).

Here is one of the shots, processed and converted to b&w with LR 3:

I tried to turn this into a real high key version as well, but I don't really like the result - any suggestions?

What do you think? I don't have any lighting experience, please be honest (if necessary, brutal) so I can learn something here.
