Demonstration with tungsten lights.

Loop: What NOT to do!
Don’t let that nose shadow run into the lower cheek shadow…

Butterfly:
- make sure the shadow is centered directly under the nose

Chiaroscuro:
- point light source
- defined by strong/contrasty shadows
- many different ways of doing it
- you could use venetian blinds or grids or cut shapes in cardboard and shine the light through… snoots, you get the idea.
