I get the feeling that the background was gray and you had to do a lot of work to clean it up to make it white. There are still some places that you missed.

High key is, in my opinion, more than just a white background.

High Key, for me, means that the image has a 'washed out' look to it to the point that normal skin goes from 'pink' to white. This also means that any other colors are going to be affected. Perhaps I'm wrong on this?

 /ˈhaɪˈki/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [hahy-kee] Show IPA

–adjective
(of a photograph) having chiefly light tones, usually with little tonal contrast (distinguished from low-key ).

To my eye the above image is not a high key image. There is way too much contrast in it to define it that way.

I am not sure about the washed out look nor eth4e white skin tones.

For many years, the high key look has been more about the "key" of the background, and clothing. However the skin tone should remain as such. That is not to say that white skin would not be high key also, but just not a requirement.

That iis what makes high key more difficult. My example is not the best, because I wasn't trying to get a completely white background, but the "Key" is high key because of the clothing, hair color, and background.

For a more precise hi-key portrait, I use two small lights to brighten the background. One on either side of the background and at a 45 degree angle, pointed towards the background.
