“Photography, just like a painter’s canvas, is a two-dimensional medium and the use of chiaroscuro helps create the illusion of depth, or a third dimension. Chiaroscuro is an important compositional element in photography especially if you want to create a photograph vs. a picture.”¹ Americano Dream Photography, Rolando Gomez.
