Packed with images and diagrams from more than a dozen acclaimed photographers, this resource shows exactly how to master middle-key photographs. The techniques illustrated provide tips for establishing sufficient structure by precisely defining the objectives of the middle-key shoot. Covering all aspects--from the conception of the portrait to lighting, clothing, props, and backgrounds that support the image to the technical and equipment requirements--this guidebook also discusses middle key both within and outside the studio setting. By consciously deciding to create middle-key portraits, photographers can help to avoid arbitrary decisions and begin more precisely selecting the kinds of colors and tones that will produce visual harmony and an overall pleasing appearance.
