In my recent blog Low Key Photography-Modifying Existing Light in Your Camera
I used Blue Jays as models to show how Low Key Portraits can be done in existing light by using your camera settings. I found this old portrait of my Peruvian colt taken in harsh sunlight with soft focus. He is stepping out of the barn door into harsh sunlight. If I had not used spot metering to create this low key portrait, you would see the lit up background inside the barn. Many enjoyed the above article, so I thought they might enjoy seeing the effects you can achieve on subjects besides Blue Jays.
