I'll be doing two entries for this week's Round Robin Photo Challenge: Candlelight, as challenged by Carly of Ellipsis. For this first entry, I made my first serious use of my new tabletop tripod, pointing it at a "cinnamon & nutmeg" votive candle I bought in a pack of four at Christmas. Normally we get bayberry, but apparently that's not boutiquey enough for places like Walgreen's to carry any more. Anyway, I took a number of shots, fussing with the settings a couple of times along the way. Here are some of the results, in the order taken:
None of the above shots have been lightened or darkened or saturated, just cropped in a couple of cases. But I can't resist doing just one FX edit. This uses the solarization effect in PhotoStudio, followed by a negative effect. Cool!
The next entry will follow shortly, and include links to the other Robins. Stay tuned!
