Beautiful examples! And two beautiful photos! Do you do origami yourself? Very, very nice. Thanks for posting. :-)

Thanks! I did origami moreso in my youth, but thought a white fold on white might work.

Lighting was relatively challenging to get right on the high-key. The low-key was just a single candle moved around until something came out good. Long exposures on both. My "studio" shots are below (as seem to be popular):

Fantastic! if that's your eye, you are still in your youth (and your avatar is ALSO high key [like mine!]) Yes, we all get a kick out of seeing the behind-the-scenes - for the helps in replicating studio setups, as well as seeing what's behind the glamour (sometimes not so glamorous!). Nice origami, too! My sister and I used to do a little of it and she still does, I believe. She can do anything, with this delightfully thin colored paper squares. I mostly make origami boulders out of thick, used printing paper riddled with my mistakes! :-)

Yep, its my eye (see separate post).

Regarding your brand of origami, if you wrote a Haiku on it first, it'd be worth $5 more :-)

These are what I think are true high / low key photographs. I really like the bottom lighting for the high key shot. I want to experiment with a few set up shots like this in the next week. I already have an idea to steal from your low key studio setup.:-)Sorry, I mean borrow.
