High key fly

High key fly

I am just messing around. Have a new macro lens and the wind will not stop blowing to let me play with it!! Never properly tried high key before; please feel free to tell me how I should do it.

Thanks Bridget. I am never too sure how much detail is supposed to merge into the background..Lol!! I decided to preserve the eye detail. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Viv

Thanks Amanda. As far as I can make out it is an image with more white in it than dark and a somewhat reduced contrast. This was done on my grandmother's garden bench which has greyish white primer on it. I am not sure if what I have done after that is right though.. Viv

Viv this is very good, if it isn't high key then it should be.
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious.

Don't know about high key Viv....but the detail on the fly turned out great....I get high key shots all the time without even trying......just get a backlit subject and use spot don't think that is how it is done though, somehow....SmileAlan

I like it, Viv and I don't mind the vanishing back wing - the eyes still have lots of detail. LOL at Alan. Jan
