I found this little ditty on Pinterest and had to immediately try it. I have a crate of clementines so off I went. I enjoyed some pomegranate and of couse, an orange to the golden glow of the peel. No candle no wick needed, just the orange and olive oil. How to?
There was also a tutorial i found on Pinterest about taking photos of Christmas trees. It was written from the DSLR perspective which I don't have. So I tried out my own version of the tips with my point and shoot. I turned off all the lights, switched it to nighttime mode, steadied the camera on a book (or use a tripod) and shoot. The shutter stays open longer to let in the glow. I love how the light highlighted the pattern in the glass plate. Viola! Now I have to try it on our Christmas tree if we ever get one. Here we are 2 weeks past our supposed closing date still waiting for the all-clear to move into our lovely new home.
