Is there a way to take high key or low key photos without using multiple equipment like reflectors etc.,? I have a 600 EX RT flash and a black velvet cloth. I give below two examples more to understand how to get those backgrounds by use of high F number or flash or synthetic background.
Your help would be appreciated.
The low key was done using a black cloth in the background and f/8 with 600 RT flash.
High key with a thermacol.
I have seen some wonderful examples here and read a lot of tutorials but each go on to show equipment basics which I don't have like reflectors etc., Or is this a must?
