Low Key Lighting

ˈlō ˈˌkē
Low-key is a term that describes images that are dark and contain few highlight areas. The main use of low-key lighting as a creative visual tool is to accentuate the shape and contour of a subject, by leaving additional lighting (fill light, for example) at a bare minimum, or omitting it entirely. Low-key lighting is also often used in cinema to create dramatic, moody effects, in many types of films from romance to horror.
