Alana Low Key Images.

These are some photos I took a few years ago when I had the use of a studio in Belfast and which is unfortunately now closed. I was trying out "Low key" but did not have very good success with the final processing, could not separate the black clothes and background very well so I did not like the final results. I have now got DXO so I got the RAW files out and did them over again in DXO and here are few of the results. The only thing I am not keen on is the model's expressions but I could not get her to change it much, just difficult to work with.
Comments good or bad welcome. The pictures on my screen show better separations than ones that appear here, e.g. the white lines on the suit.

Thanks Woody, this is one of the pre-sets in DXO to which I added a couple of Small tweaks all in DXO.

Re: Alana Low Key Images.

Nice set Colin

I think lo-key works best with side lighting rather than from the front as you get more contrast on the face and it shows the edges of dark clothing better. Makes the picture more moody too which is for me what lo-key is all about.
