Value Empahsis
high contrast in one area and subdued contrast elsewhere so you can get the viewer to concentrate on a certain object. The picture below shows value empahsis because the lighter background brings out the main object/figure which is the model because she is dark.

What is Chiaroscuro?
A drawing using only line is very effective in showing shapes. It uses light to produce depth.
