Several different lighting schemes.
I think the OP needs to define "dramatic lighting".
If high ratio is part of the definition there is an example.
If incorporating light source is part of the definition there is an example.
If gelled accent is a part of the definition there is an an example.
If the definition is lighting that creates visual drama through contrast, shadow, and highlights that enhance the subject dramatically, I'm having trouble finding an example.
