Low Key Photography


This week's theme is Low Key Photography. So what is Low Key?

Low-key lighting is a style of lighting for photography, film or television. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. ... Low key light accentuates the contours of the subject by throwing areas into shade while a fill light or reflector may illuminate the shadow areas to control contrast.source

Low Key photography is all about using light and dark to accentuate the features of your subject. It is a pretty dramatic style of lighting and can create some pretty cool photos.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into 2 different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into.

Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st5 Hive4 Hive
2nd3 Hive2 Hive
3rd2 Hive1 Hive

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

There will be a new theme announced each week. I am hoping to have the whole year planned out and will be able to have that posted for you all to prepare images for the contest.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. You are also encouraged to join the Photography Lovers Community and make your post to the Photography Lovers Community.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well.

  • You are encouraged to share your posts on social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, etc. If you do so, use the #posh tag on your post and share the link of your share in the comment section of your post for a chance for extra curation from curation projects that are curating posts that are promoting Hive to sites outside of the blockchain.

Awesome shot.

Thank you very much.

And we have a.... winner!

Hahahahaha! You can't be so sure.

Thought i would give it a go with this photo i am not into low key photos not that i don't like them they are hard to do and you need all the right gear i think this photo turn out a little low key because of the surrounding nature while we were up hiking the mountains of Chang Mai in Thailand at the time it was early morning coffee time with the fog and clouds surrounding the mountains.

Tier: amateur
This is my entry.

The light, when taking photos, is as attractive as the subject, I can determine, in my opinion, a more interesting point of view ... Maybe it's a trivial observation, but anyway ...

My partner has lent itself for this shot and here it is.

Great perspective in every shot shared by the participants that's excellent many congratulations to them and thanks for having this contest :)

Thank you very much for the third place, there are many wonderful pictures here. Regards .
