Martin L Posted February 8, 2022 Share Posted February 8, 2022 Chiaroscuro literally translated from the Italian as 'light-dark', generally termed 'low-key' in photography A style characterized by really heavy contrast, deep shadows and generally a single light source highlighting just part of the subject Further info can be found here Chiaroscuro - Wikipedia or Low-key photography - Wikipedia. Maybe a bit more 'arty' than 'stocky' but I love this style, for me it creates the most atmospheric, dramatic images that I have seen. It can conjure some real emotion. There are some great examples on the Wiki pages but below are some of my attempts. Usual rules apply, three entries and must have been submitted to Alamy.
