In terms of aesthetics, not “all black everything “, but harnessing both black and white.

For example, best to start with a black base or a black background, and add the white afterwards. Even Leonardo da Vinci said start with a black canvas. So start with a black canvas, then add accentuating white afterwards. In photography this means to shoot your photos as dark as possible, and have that one glimmer of a subject or a figure outlined in a silhouette in white.
