Introduction

Chiaroscuro – kee-ahr-uhskyoor’-oh The balance of light and shade used for dramatic effect

Chiaroscuro Photography is based in Northern Wisconsin and concentrates on creating artistic works in areas ranging from art nudes/figure work to observations of both the natural and man made world. The cohesive theme tends to be a flair for the dramatic.

Years ago, Jamii took a photography class. He did a series of black & white nudes with high contrast and deep shadows for his final project. He learned there’s a name for this style that so appealed to him and has concentrated on it ever since. While he shoots a wide variety of material, he still prefers high contrast, and lots of shadow.

Anyway…there’s the intro.  So let’s post a photograph.
