Project 52/Framed: Mid key

This week we continue to experiment with tone and mood in our compositions. While high key images are created with bright light tones and low key photographs rely on shadowy dark tones, mid key images are created by isolating the mid-level tones. It may be subtle and pleasing rather than dramatic and often appears better in color than a monochromatic scheme. Colors can be complimentary and yet the same key, so although in black and white everything would blend, in color it works. In this photo, the brighter colors of my daughter’s clothing help bring the focus to her.
