High Key Experiments

Our next assignment in Digital II is High Key and Film Noir portraits. We have to make 1 object and 1 person in each style.

Here’s an “object” in high key. Or is it a person?

I may re-shoot to get a little more depth of field so both her eyes are in focus…

Steps (Photoshop 5)
– Duplicate background layer
– Add Adjustment Layer – Levels
– Select duplicate layer, Image->Adjustments->Desaturate
– Select Levels Layer
– Add Adjustment Layer – Gradient – Foreground to transparent, radial, adjust scale, reverse

Here it is again with a little more depth of field:
