12 Days - Candles

I took this shot for Cheryls 12 Days course. The background is actually a mirror, there are actually only 3 candles in the shot, but it worked really well. I like the serenity of this shot.

Another festive image - it really is beginning to feel a lot like christmas

12 Days - White Balance

Todays exercise was testing out the different white balance options on your camera to see the difference. And it really is something worth trying out, especially for christmas shots, where most of the shots are indoors in poor light.

While I was playing I took this shot which I really liked as it has a real christmassy feel.

The picture was shot completely in the dark, using a flourescent white balance setting, a 30" exposure and using only a flourescent torch to light the subject, which I moved around slightly to light up the different elements.

Off now to finish off the wine - well couldn't let it go to waste ;-)
