Project 365: Day 122, Light and Shadows

This week I am coming back to street photography, but with a different technique. Its called “Chiaroscuro”. Often referred to as  “Rembrandt lighting” in portrait photography, which creates interesting results in street and candid shots.

Directly quoting from the Wikipedia to explain my first attempt at this:

Chiaroscuro (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊər/Italian: [kjarosˈkuːro]; Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is a technical term used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures. Similar effects in cinema and photography also are called chiaroscuro.”
