Chiaroscuro Gallery special interests
Chiaroscuro is Italian and stands for light-dark.
In art it is used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume. In cinema it became famous in German Expressionism movies in the 1920.
I use this technique to darken the whole photo and afterwards to bring back highlights in several areas of the picture to achieve a nice contrast that leads the observer's eye to the wanted points.
