But sometimes, low key photographs which suggest contemplation or
thoughtfulness, even in infants, can be effective. In my attempts at
such low key images, I try to add light to the child's face,
especially the eyes, even thought the remainder of the image is muted
or in shadow. An example of my effort is the image of my grandson
Charlie. The subject was primarily illuminated with window
light, shot with a Canon EOS 20D, 18-55 mm zoom lens at 21 mm. , at
1/50 sec., f 3.5, at ISO 400.
