Our next monthly competition is Light/Dark and is a printed submission. There should be strong contrast  between Light & Dark (also known as Chiaroscuro). Chiaroscuro is a photography technique and style often referred to as “clair obscur” or “extreme low key”. While the term chiaroscuro originates from the Renaissance period and is often associated with painting or drawing, it has evolved into the photographic world and now often simply means strong and bold contrasts between light and dark areas in a photograph. It can be applied to landscapes, portraiture, interiors, architecture and still life.

The due date is 11th February and your print should be Black and White and mounted. Please put your membership number and title on the back of your entry. Please check out samples at http://www.thephotoargus.com/35-gorgeous-examples-chiaroscuro-photography/.
