Low Key Portraits - Simulated SUNLIGHT.

Portraits are generally divided as normal light portraits, lit normally, low key or high key portraits....In low-key portraits, the dark areas dominate, while in high-key, it is light toned with few blacks. ....Back sunlighted portraits are more appreciated since the sun makes a halo or rim lighting effect on the areas it falls...This was shot by a 70-300 mm lens with a spotlight in my home studio.....The camera was set on Av mode and metering on 'evalutive,....therefore the meter also read the hightlights and gave me a correct low-key toned portrait....In photography language it is called simulative sunlight., as though u are shooting sunlighted objects........Just read about helps a lot.
