52-Week Photography Challenge: Week 1352-Week Photo Challenge: Week 13 | Portrait: High Key

“WEEK 13: Portrait: High Key: Expose to the right and create a light, airy high key portrait.”

For those of you who don’t know “exposing to the right,” it’s when you set your camera settings in a way that the histogram has more information in the right side. That means that the photo will be brighter, in simple terms. It’s also known as High Key photography. If you want me to explain the histogram in-depth in another blog post, let me know in the comments. But for this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 13 I’m not going to.

Yesterday, October 23rd, 2018, was my sixth anniversary living away from home.
