Chiaroscuro – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

December 2, 2014

Chiaroscuro is a lighting technique used by visual artists characterized by a strong contrast between light and dark. The contrast helps achieve a more 3 dimensional look to the image. Famous cinematographers that have made use of the technique include Gregg Toland (Citizen Kane), Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now), and Sven Nykvist (Seventh Seal). http://ift.tt/xdPLkG
