Low Key Lighting
Low key lighting is an older style of lighting from before movies, when they would use a single, harder light source, because they didn't need to worry about shadows on sets. In contemporary times, it's used more for dramatic effect and artistic flare. It's also an effect that can be done with constant lighting as opposed to a flash, though for these I was using a strobe. The strobe was to camera right, and although there was no light to camera left, the wall there is white so it did reflect a fair amount back into the shadows that would otherwise have been black.
