Low Key Portrait

In a low key portrait, there is a dominance of a dark background and this requires a more subtle lighting to create a mood and statement. The goal or purpose of the photographer in a low key portraiture is to create images with vitality and luminance despite the lack of brightness or a darker tonal balance of the photo.

In this portrait, I added a deep blue photo filter and a mist filter to create a subtle tone and to draw the eyes of the viewer to study and appreciate the image more.
