The relationship between areas of light and dark.
when a light and dark contrast is used to create a focal point within a composition.
A specific range of value used in an image. Full value scheme uses a range of value from white to black. High key value scheme uses the values from white to middle grey. Middle key value scheme uses ranges of grey with no white or black. Low key value schemes uses values from black to middle value.
