self portrait tuesday

april's theme is low key/high key.

what is high key?
here's an explanation from wikipedia:...

"High-key lighting is usually quite homogeneous and free from dark shadows." i think about a white or very light background...not much or hardly any contrast on the subject because of a larger, more diffuse light source when i think about high key.

"Low key light accentuates the contours of an object by throwing areas into shade while a fill light or reflector may illuminate the shadow areas to control contrast." the way i think about low key is a dark background and more of a small light source.

hoping this makes sense?
