This black and white photograph is an example of a low key composition of grey to black. I photographed my friend, Amaniya in my yard on a bright sunny day. I choose a spot with darker shadows as the background for the image, but ensured that the sunlight hit Amaniya’s face and clothes highlighting the subject. I set the ISO to the minimum to create a dramatic effect and emphasized the darker shadows in the image. While the details in the background might not be as clear, I made sure to focus on Amaniya’s facial features and hand placement to effectively portray her expression.
