Portrait lighting for mood

During this class, we learned how to work with lighting while shooting portraits to create a mood. These were my two most successful photographs. In the first photograph the dim lighting helped create an intensely sad mood. I was also able to capture the subject shedding a couple of tears, which also contributed to the mood. In the second photograph , the background lighting helped separate the subject from the background and gave off a nice glow. We also used a fill light to brighten up her face.
