Chiaroscuro, a scene arranged in light and dark.
This artistic term is one I learned not in art history or a photography class, but in a song by Paula Cole. So whenever I see strong contrasts of white and black, I hear this song, the marriage of dark and light, chiaroscuro. Waxing artsy-fartsy today, I was inspired to play with my photos and apply different filters to draw out the elements of shadows and snow.
