Experimenting Low Key by Kirsten Bruening

This photo was taken on a bright, sunny and warm April afternoon. I had just started experimenting low key. The bright sun on a spring afternoon was perfect for this. Also, the black and white effect emphasized the perfect play of light and shadow. Loy Key gives once again very interesting effects in black & white photography.
