Low Key - Water

The assignment I have been working on this week for my other joint photography blog is Low Key. Low Key shots are of dark subjects, under exposed to give a moody dramatic effect. I wanted to capture the ripples of light on water and make it almost abstract by not including any other subject matter in at all. I deliberately under exposed by 3 stops in the camera, and then added even more contrast in post processing. Also in shot one I added the "Holga -ish" effect from Picasa. Holga is a medium format toy camera made in Honk Kong and well known for its low fidelity effect, so I think it worked well for this topic! Neither of these are the winner though, you'll have to hop over to Two Views to see that one!
