Hi-Key Techniques.

This monochrome image of my granddaughter, taken around 4 years ago illustrates the high-key studio technique that was popular at that time, – frequently created in our studio at Dundonald.

I have thousands of images like this, shot in hundreds of baby-shoots, (after all my sales pitch was ‘Bob Shoots Your Kids!) and showing other studio techniques – but unfortunately, in this day and age, posting photo’s of children on the internet is not well received by parents and the authorities – and for good reasons too.

Techies: Nikon D700 Camera, lens at 42mm.  f/11 @ 1/125th sec, on 200ISO, two Elinchrom 500 studio flash units, one as the key-light behind the camera, and one inside a hi-key white backdrop tent.  Modifiers were a softbox on the key-light and a reflector on the back-light  (inside the light-tent).

Here’s the diagram:
