Photo Gallery Style: Candles
A collection of some of the most beautiful "Candles" professional photographs & prints I've taken over the years. Please note there may be multiple pages of photographs so keep scrolling or look for the "Older Posts" button!
Well, I promised I wouldn’t do a shot-of-the-day for the full year, and yet I did anyways. And so, I end the year with a lack of originality and yet another disaster story.
Why is there a picture of stacked die above? Because the picture of the cake didn’t work.
Me: “Give me a little bit to get my gear set-up and plan for proper exposure of the light. Whatever you do, just don’t light the candles yet.”
Her: “What? Light the candles!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Me: “No! Don’t li….”
And like that, the candles were lit.
Let me just tell you, I have never seen someone so fast and efficient with a matchbook, but the frantic twitches of excitement and intoxicated look in her glazed-eyes were as unnerving as being locked in a dark room with an ADHD four-year-old who just pounded twelve-bottles of Five-Hour Energy after being forced to listen to the Hamster Dance song for 24-straight hours.
Within seconds, the shape of the “365” numbers had melted, and there was wax everywhere. While I still captured better images than the one below, I feel it’s a fair tribute to the failed attempt at a shot that is no more than a distant memory now.
