No I dont really like high key a whole lot. Or the over exposure of shots.

High key done as high key can put out some very beautiful images. Its just seems lately everyone is taking normal shots and cranking the exposure in them.

Now dont get me wrong, by looking at these you shot them this way. So Im not saying that you cranked yours up. These are beautiful girls, and I'd just like to see a little more detail of them.

Fair enough! I take your point! Thanks for your comments!

I am interested to know what your definition of high key is!? From any reading and research I have done these are as close to high key as I can get.

I have a calibrated Apple Cinema screen and the only one that has a pink element to it is #4 but that is intentional. I do have a light meter but cant see what difference that will make considering the high key look I am intending to produce.

Thanks for your comments.

I didn't define high- key. :) By the strictest definition.. almost all parts of an image are brighter than 18% gray.

Here is an interesting article... http://www.idigitalpho​ (external link)

Lower contrast would have helped. IMO your darks are too dark. In some cases running up the left side of the histogram. Detail is lost in the highlights.

BTW... I don't tend to do it. It is pretty tough. I have a white cat though... hmmmm. :)
