I have always been fascinated by renaissance paintings, that chiaroscuro effect present in Caravaggio's work and the dutch masters such as Vermeer and Rembrandt. I'm no painter so I've tried desperately to recreate that effect with photography. I had some 'low key' pictures with my B&W film work that came close, but I think I've finally come somewhere closer with digital.

 

I would be glad of anyones opinions to whether this is all getting there.
