This series is of a figure on a very old cast iron clock in my collection. It depicts "The Holy Grail" and the clock is one unique work of art. I chose this subject because it's interesting and also because I think of Low Key Photography as "The Holy Grail" of imaging-using your camera's settings to manipulate the light.
I took these in the same ray of light streaming in the window, with no special set-up, I just used camera settings and spot metering to transform the scene from daylight to dark.
I had the camera set to 16:9 aspect ratio, hence the taller than normal images.
I hope these "Dark Photography" images inspire others to "give it a whirl" if they haven't done so already.
