Chiaroscuro - Light to Dark

Chiaroscuro
This Italian renaissance painting technique can have also been used in photography.  It is a great compositional tool to help identify and highlight certain areas or subjects in your image.  Especially if you are limited in tonal and colour range.

It is one of the most effective ways of isolating a subject.
