As we continue to feature the "language of light" this week, we for sure want to bring up Chiaroscuro.  It is an Italian word originating in Renaissance art.  It literally means "light-dark," and in art and photography technical terms it refers to contrasts between light and shadow to achieve a great depth or three-dimensional look in an image.  We used to have a cat named Chiaroscuro, and one of our favorite painters is Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, so you can get an idea of how fascinated we are with looking for interesting balance and contrast of light and shadow.
