I took this picture to replace the shot I got before. The problem with the earlier version is that it has nothing to do with Christmas. It’s just the top of the candle with blurry lights.
What I really wanted was a picture that at least had the feel of Christmas to it. Of course, I didn’t want to over do the picture, so I kept the props to a minimum; just red berries, and pine. I used a small slave flash for the lighting, but the first few shots were blown out. In the end, I had to bounce the flash off the wall, then darken a little in Photoshop.
I hope you all enjoy it.
