Cool idea, I had to look up both words (Chiaroscuro and Caravaggio) so I learned something as well as seeing some good photography.

Chiaroscuro - my favourite way of catching images.

Hmm... lots of lovely photos but they're not all of them what I'd call Chiaroscuro, which Wikipedia defines as characterized by strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for using contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modeling three-dimensional objects such as the human body.

For some more on definitions, plus a bit on why chiaroscuro as perceived by the eye can't aways be captured photographically, try: http://www.rogerandfrances.com/subsc...scuro%201.html . To quote:

Chiaroscuro is borrowed from the Italian. It comes from two words, 'chiaro' (clear) and 'oscuro' (obscured), though it is normally (and very unsatisfactorily) translated as 'light and shadow'. It originated as a characteristic style of painting that relies on dramatic contrasts of light and shade. It evolved rapidly in the 17th century: Caravaggio (1573-1610) is normally held up as the first master to use it; Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) further developed the technique, and gave his name to the style when used in photography ('Rembrandt lighting'); and Wright of Derby (Joseph Wright, 1734-1797) arguably took it further than anyone else.

Cheers,

R.

Paul, I was browsing here and saw this picture of a child in a high chair and without looking to see whose photo I said to myself That is Paul! I know it can't be but the resemblance is uncanny. Good photo too.
