Project 52: Low Key | Week 17

April 28, 2017  •  7 Comments

It's another Friday and another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post; this week it's Week 17 and our theme is "low key." In photography, low key is the use of darker tones and lighting. Generally, the background is black with the subject partially in shadows to create a more dramatic look. This look lends itself well to the studio, so that's where Mr. Bojangles, Paco, and I headed this week.

To see more low key images, head over to Linda of DogShotz Photography in Indianapolis, IN, and then around the rest of this week's blog circle until you end up back here.

If you would like to book a custom pet portrait session in your home or other favorite location...or even a fantasy photo shoot, use the hot pink "BOOK NOW" button to the right of this post (at the bottom or your screen on mobile), send us an email to suzi [at], or give us a call at 513-288-1650 in the Greater Cincinnati area or at 650-382-3242 in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Very nice! They both look great on the black - love the "mood" in these!
Paco's coat lends itself well to low key. I think I like the very bright Mr. B, rather than the low key Mr. B, because, you know, his personality is sparkly!
Mr Bo Jangles is always such a good sport, great images

Love their looks! Very nice.
These look great, especially that black background! I can certainly agree that a studio makes this technique much easier.
