High Key vs Low Key Headshots

Dallas Best Professional Studio headshot photographer portrait photography
Your business headshots in Dallas can choose either High Key or Low Key lighting style.

What does it mean?

The two above examples, headshots from my own Dallas photography studio, perfectly illustrate this. High Key, means “well-lit” …sortof. It means a brighter ambient light environment in which the photo is taken. And of course “low key” means the photo environment has low ambient light. In both cases, the face itself is well-exposed. So it does not mean a bright face vs a dark face. And high-key vs low-key does not mean simply the backdrop is lighter/darker either.

What are the implications of high key vs low key?

When it comes to YOUR headshot, these two styles of portraits have a different FEEL to them. And this has implications for how your business headshot is seen (and felt) by your audience (your business peers, and your prospects).

In Conclusion — my photos are designed to boost your image in a strategic way

As with everything I do, I am helping you manage your IMAGE to the public and to your prospects, and your image is something value potent — the right image can help open amazing doors of opportunity in your life and career, and the wrong image will only waste time and money and lead to frustration.
