  1. What is the lighting like in these photos?
    I think the lighting in these photos are One Light, and I think it is overhead of the subject so the whole subject is lit from the top.

    Is the lighting high key or low key?
    I think the lighting is low key.

    Why did the photographer choose this kind of lighting for this kind of subject?
    The photographer used this kind of lighting to show the subject and keep the black background not as lit, so that the subject is the main focus and it makes it an overall better image.

    What would these photos look like if they had high key lighting instead of low key?
    These photos would have a white background instead of a black one, and the subject wouldn’t be so easy to see or even be able to recognize what it is.

  2. The lighting in these photos is a mixture of high key and low key. High key where it needs to be to show the colors of the insects, low key where it needs to be to make the colors look more vibrant.

    The photographer most likely did this to make the patterns and colors of the wings look more interesting, and vibrant in color.

    If they had high key lighting, these photos wouldn’t look as interesting as they do, as the colors would be too bright and the background would be too light, mixing everything up.

  3. The photos have low key lighting, I think the photographer chose this because it brings more attention to the middle of the pictures. If the photos had high key lighting the images would be more bright.

  6. I’m guessing that they used a black background with really bright lights to capture the details of the butterfly so I think that the lights are high keys. So I believe that the black background was used in the photo because so that the background can’t distract the viewer and that type of lighting was used because to highlight the textures and details of the butterfly. If there were low key lighting then you wouldn’t be able to see the really cool details of the butterfly.

  9. The lighting is dark but expressing the colors of the subject.The lighting is low key and the photographer probably choose this kind of lighting to express the subjects color more and so it stands out more. If these photos had high key lighting instead of low then it probably wouldn’t stick out as much and the image would become more brighter.

    What would these photos look like if they had high key lighting instead of low key?
    I think they would obviously look different, but I think that the mood would change and the look of the color on the wings wouldn’t be as bright and they would look more pastel.

  14. The lighting is very bright and one that really emphasizes the pretty colors of the butterfly.I think that the lighting is kind of in the the middle of high and low key because, the black background is subtle and black, and the center of the photo is the beautiful with the colored butter fly. The photographer choose this kind of lighting because he wanted to make the focus on the center of the photo. He also edited the photo in a way that made the butterfly stand out. If he didn’t have low key lighting, the photo wouldn’t as simple and beautiful. There is nothing that is drawing your eyes away from the butterfly and I feel like too much light and brightness would take away from the simplicity of the detailed butterfly.

  16. What is the lighting like in these photos?
    -The lighting is not super bright but it shows off how well the subjects look. A light could also be directly above the subjects to give them this lighting.

    Is the lighting high key or low key?
    -I believe that the lighting is low key due to the dark background and the light only on the wings of the insects.

    Why did the photographer choose this kind of lighting for this kind of subject?
    -I think the photographer chose this lighting to be able to show off the amazing way that the insect’s wings look and the color that they have. But I also believe he used it so that they wouldn’t have so much light in the background to distract the viewer.

    What would these photos look like if they had high key lighting instead of low key?
    -I think that the photos would be much brighter and the colors would show more vibrantly but at the same time there would be light that would distract the viewer.

  17. The brightness is just enough to bring out the vibrancy of the photo. I think the lighting is low key due to the dark background and how he/she uses it. I think the photographer uses this type of lighting to capture the full use of the butterfly. There would be a glare on the brighter colors so it would look really bad.

  20. The lighting is only focused on the object in the middle. The lighting used is low lighting, i think. The author chose this because it would make the object in the middle pop, i dont really know what would happen if high lighting was used since i wasnt really taught this.

  25. The lighting in these photos is completely dark, except for around the subject. The lighting is highkey in the center, but fades to low key around the edges. The photographer chose this kind of lighting because he wants his viewers to only pay attention to the subject and have more vibrant colors. I think these photos would be way worse if it had high key lighting, the colors wouldn’t stand out as much as they do with low key lighting.

  26. The lighting in these photos enhances the vibrancy of the butterfly’s wings and makes them pop more. I think the lighting is low key because it isn’t over bearing, it’s more complementary. I think the photographer chose this kind of lighting to make the colors in his photos rich and stand out. These photos would have more of a glare to them if they were taken with high key lighting instead of low key lighting and I think the it would take away from the subject in the photo.

  27. What is the lighting like in these photos?
    I think that there is one light that they are using and they put it above the object so the camera focuses on that one thing

    Is the lighting high key or low key?
    I think that the lighting is low key because the background behind the object is still pitch black and we can’t see anything beyond it. Only the object that the light is focusing on.

    Why did the photographer choose this kind of lighting for this kind of subject?
    I think the photographer chose this kind of lighting because he wanted his audience to focus on the detail of the wings, and how it closely resembles a flower in some way.

    What would these photos look like if they had high key lighting instead of low key? If it had high key lighting then the background wouldn’t be dark at all, we’d be able to see at least something going on there. Maybe the image would look a little too bright as well because in this picture it looks solid perfect, amazing detail and in focus.
