Hi,
First you have to understand what a low key picture is.
In a low key photo, the subject or part of subject is lit and the rest (back ground) is dark or not lit.
This effect can be achieved even with out flash/speedlights. For example, place the subject directly under the light (any source) against dark back ground like tunnel.
