These images were inspired by my love of candles, I also just have a lot around. I was nervous to light them because of the fabric, but without the fire it wouldn't have the same effect. Something that we also have around the house is crystals. I had used them for a different picture and I wanted something more to complete it, and it made the picture what I wanted. Visually, I also like the shadows that occur because of the fire, and natural light outside.
In my house we have a lot of candles and random crystals and such. We actually would find them in the ground a while back when we lived in Panama, we decided to keep them. I'm actually using all of these things in the picture above, but this take is simplier. I decided to use grey as the background to go with the crystals, and to accent the candle. This photo is simple, but has significant figures that give it a nice effect.
