Lamp Light

An old garden ornament given a second lease of life …

Taken on a Nikon D800 with a 105mm macro lens, f/8 @ 1sec, ISO 200.
The 1 second exposure was to record the colour of the light from the tea-candle – and a burst of flash – reflected off a white ceiling, gently illuminated the rest of the scene.
Finished in Lightroom – a touch of sharpening and radial filter to enhance the lighting differential.

    • Thanks, Lisa!
      It was a little bit trial-and-error to start with, but, as I see it, that’s one of the great things about digital – that immediate feedback, and the possibility of tweaking your settings and trying again.
      Not so easy on film!
      Thanks again for your comments – always appreciated 🙂
