• Predominantly dark and light values are used, minimizing the use of medium values

Artists might choose to emphasize light and dark values in order to lend starkness and drama to a scene, creating a sense of mystery by minimizing the visibility of certain objects/characters through over-lighting or under-lighting. Exclusive use of light and dark values might also be simply an accurate depiction of certain lighting conditions.
