Welcome to my photoblog. I try to keep it updated daily with a new photo from either my personal or professional life. It is not intended to be taken as my professional portfolio (please visit the main website for that), but instead it is more of an informal and fun way for me to share some of my personality and creativity with you. Many of the photos on my blog are available for purchase as fine art prints, please visit the main website and/or contact me if you are interested. Enjoy!

Candle Lit Self Portrait

Today's shot for the "Photo a Day" project is called Candle Lit Self Portrait. I wanted to see if I could light a portrait with a single candle, and I think it worked fairly well. Shutter speed is quite slow so a tripod is required, and the model would have to hold VERY still! Candle was about 1-1.5 ft away from subject.
