dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores the translation of chiaroscuro lighting and composition in historical paintings to the photographic medium. This translation was achieved by following similar compositional and contrast ratios found in chiaroscuro paintings, resulting in heightened contour and three-dimensionality, thereby creating a dramatic impact on the viewer. The thesis analyzed ways in which chiaroscuro has been adapted to photography and cinematography. The primary factors of light design and composition were identified and applied to studio subjects to effectively recreate the chiaroscuro effect in a series of photographs. The additional element of a sense of weightlessness was subsequently achieved through the use of an underwater environment.en
