But I figure people will want to know what the holder looks like when there is a lit candle in it! Try taking pictures of THAT.
The glass is dark, the candle flame very weak for photos, but a flash completely ruins the picture. It's been a problem of mine for a long time.
Here is one of the pictures I ended up using, with no flash, lots of light behind me but not directly shining at me or my dark corner and me balancing my camera on a broom handle for a tripod (since for some stupid reason, if you turn off the flash the anti-shake thing won't work).
If there is ANYONE out there with an idea or tips on how to take photos in these conditions, this would be a grand time to speak up! I figure I have about 4 or 5 candleholders sitting in boxes because I cannot, for the life of me, get a good picture, since the glass is just too dark to pick up in a picture. In person, they are beautiful. So sad.
Ah well, that's my dilemma of the day. :D
(WHY do I always think "dilemma" is spelled dil-e-m-N-a?)
