I thought a mix of tech and candlelight would make an interesting contrast, something old fashioned and something futuristic.
Camera: Canon EOS 450D
Lens: Tamron Di 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Tele-Macro
ISO: 200
Aperture: f/5.6
Exp. Time: 1/2 Sec
The camera was on a tripod and I used the infrared remote for Canon cameras to take the photo as to reduce vibrations as much as possible, the camera was set to manual focus to avoid changing the focus. I wanted the candle in the shot but not as the main focus, so I used a shallow depth of field.

Used a Canon SD1100 point and shoot with 1/8th shutter and ISO 200. I set the camera on the coffee table to prevent getting a blurry photo.

Technique: I used a Christmas ornament, a little stain-glass angel, with a 1/60th exposure time. It took a few tries to get the lighting just right so that the figure could be the right color and not washed out.

The shot was taken with my Canon S90 @ F8, ISO 400 and with a 15sec exposure on a tripod. To achieve the blur, I adjusted the head of the tripod downward and back to it's starting position quickly at the start of the exposure.

I used a Canon 500D with an old M42 Mount Carl Zeiss Flektogon 2.4/35 prime @ f22 1 second exposure. I used a Manfrotto CF tripod along with a 2 second timer which enabled me to use a long exposure and still get a nice sharp image. The candle was sat on a chair with a plate in front which contained balanced slices of raw jelly cubes, I wanted something that would interact with the candle light and saw some jelly
in the cupboard which is nicely translucent.

This was "shot" using my Canon 7D with the 50mm f1.8 prime. Tripod, ISO 800, 1/6 shutter, f2.8. The only light in the image is from a taper candle inserted into a disassembled MAG-Lite. To keep the flame
from melting the reflective lens of the flashlight, the setup was aimed up and the final image rotated.

I was in my room and used a black t-shirt as the backdrop, I place a small candle on a raised surface and leaned the light bulb against it and tried to line up the light of the candle with where it come come from the bulb.

The source is a 30"x36" painting is mounted on the wall. With the shutter open for 25 seconds I used the candle to slowly trace certain elements with the candle. This not only creates streams of lights following my trace, but it also delicately lights the painting.

-Peter Glitsch


When I lit the candle, the shadows on the wall initially caught my eye. I set up the camera on a tripod, turned out the lights and tried several exposures trying to capture the shadow. When I reviewed the shots, the shadow didn't come out as intended, but I liked the way the golden light reflected off of the statue. I moved the camera in closer and zoomed in tighter to get this shot.

I set the camera up on my tripod with the aperture set to f/32, ISO 200, shutter set to bulb (84 seconds) and I added a circular polarizer filter so I could get a longer exposure without overexposing the photo. I picked up some spiral birthday candles from the store and bent them a little more, then stuck them in a rolled up piece of paper inside a beer bottle in front of my bathroom mirror with the camera looking up. The streaks of light are little balls of flaming wax that melted and dripped off. Post processing consisted of desaturation, slight curve adjustment, and some spot removal via clone tool.

This was taken with a Kodak Easyshare camera using the low light setting. We took the shot in our basement with windows covered and using a hood. I have enclosed pics of my son standing next to the set-up. The modification of the flashlight lettering looks crude, but I think it works well with the joke. I enjoyed a cigar for a haze effect. We were surprised by how much light the tiny birthday cake candle gave off.

The model is sitting on an exercise bike to look like she is levitating. We tried to make it look like a ghost, but after shooting some pictures it looks more that she has hang herself. It turned out to be a little more burlesque than our intention, but we had fun doing it.

It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.

My wife and I were giving our cat a bath, she had just knocked over the soap and shampoo and left only that bottle of Ralph Lauren Romance sitting in the corner of the bath, so when we finished I grabbed one of our candle holders and a tea light and this is how it turned out. I shot it with my Canon 300D digital rebel. ISO 100, Shot with the stock 18-55mm lens at a focal length of 54mm, 2 second exposure using my tripod. I adjusted the white balance in Photoshop but other than that I left the photo untouched , the candle light was just enough to see the text on the bottle.
