Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Low Key 2"

Description
: Take a photo where the subject is illuminated from a single point of light. Note: Low key photos show high contrast, and many/most of the tones will be in the shadow range. A bright photo taken with the sun as your only source of light does not qualify.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

Taken: July 2016 @ Royal Ontario Museum
Subject: Chihuly Exibit, a piece exhibited from the ceiling and backlit from a spotlight, the only edit was the change from colour to b&w (original is actually orange).

Wing of the airplane just as sunrise starts to break.

This is one of my favorites I've taken, but it is technically sunlight.  If you think this doesn't run afoul of the rules, please enable voting.

I didn't realise my glass was so water-stained, but anyway: bottom-lit, balanced precariously on a masked-off torch, exposure managed by tapping on the iPhone screen for a bit until low key and it looked nice.

It was late and I was too tired to go for a walk so I took this out my front door.
