    There is nothing 'high key' about these photos.

    and you need a key light to actually light the subject.

    Its ok if you did. Like I said, a lot of people obviously errantly think thats what it means. Just look it up. The idea with 'high key' is to reduce lighting ratios. Youre basically trying to light everything. Its the opposite of 'low key' where you normally only have one single key light that is lighting as little as possible (normally a profile/silhouette or something of the sort).

    Youve got your background lit to hell but the subject has almost no light. Its actually more of a 'low key' shot just with a really bright background.
