22/10/2012 ~ Burning Bright

I'm off to Denmark REALLY early tomorrow so wanted to grab another quick shot so I can relax with Mrs H&C for a bit.

 

This shot at least had a fair bit of thought put into it whilst I was packing though. This is shot just with the light of the candle which is sat on a bit of reflective card folded over to form the base and backdrop. I have a large black background camera left to kill any other reflection and I took the shot in a darkened room so the blacks are pretty black with no post-processing at all.

 

I tried lighting the candle holder with a very low flash but ultimately preferred the more minimalist shot as it has a much warmer feel to it.
