I love the warm tones mixed with high chiaroscuro lighting effect, and the luxurious draping fabric of the canopy.
I believe this image employs Chiaroscuro lighting, creating a dramatic scene. The deeper shadows also allows the viewer to see the worn clothing and subtle details on the skin of the subjects.
The chiaroscuro lighting in this photo dramatizes the image and makes the muscles in her back stand out. The lighting gives it a much more dramatic feel and creates deep shadows within the fabric.
