Re: Black shirt not exactly high key

My understanding (before my picture started this argument) was the term was based on the shadows, and contrast.

My goal was flat lighting with hot highlights, few shadows, and a white background. Doing this without overexposure was also the plan.

If my desired look has a name, I don't know it. If is is not high key, please excuse my calling it that.

Regardless of my loose understanding of high key, I got the shots I wanted, and have learned a ton in the process.
