Brief
This contest was created by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to create your own? Find out more >

A high-key image consists primarily of light tones, without dark shadows. A photograph or painting so composed features a diminished tonal range of primarily whites and light grays. But it can also be a photo with colours. The challenge is to try and capture a high key photo, which is not blown out. You can accomplish this with the sun, bright light coming through a window, a spotlight, or photography strobes - it is up to you. But keep in mind: the key to high-key photography is the control of the dark tones and shadows; essentially we DON'T want them in the image.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
