Thanks to all the visitors today! It’s always nice to log on and have a nice surprise waiting!
I finished my series of images on ice crystals yesterday, and felt particularly Photoshoppy last night, so I created a poster with the 2 best reviewed images from the group. I’ll post that directly after this discussion about the candle shot.
I took this image a week ago or so, during the night shots I was doing, playing with lighting (See “Child Holding Light” or some similar name from the recent posts). I tried to get the flame head on. In processing, I realized that the smooth wax was a bit boring, so I spruced up the saturation and added some textures. Do you feel like I do, that smooth, non detailed surfaces are HORRID in photography?? Like blue skies. I have always loved a nice, blue sky, but now it’s the worst punishment for me. Or, on the bright side, it’s a chance to be creative with my images for the day. Nah, it’s a punishment.
Anyways, it’s nice to put together a warm image after the past 4 days of ice! 🙂
