Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #244-Glowing moments

This week Siobhan, for the Lens-Artists Challenge asks us to produce an image showing glowing moments.

A still life image of a candle and book topped with a nice glass of Pinot…

My choice for this challenge has to be a still-life image I shoot way back, featuring the glow of a candle, a nice glass of Pinot accompanied by a good book.

There’s something about the warm, flickering light of a candle that exudes a sense of calm and relaxation. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a long day or to set the mood for a romantic dinner. In this particular shot, the candle’s glow illuminates the details of the wine glass and the pages of the book, creating a mesmerizing ambiance.

I used a shallow depth of field to create a soft effect, blurring the background and drawing the viewer’s attention to the glowing elements in the foreground. The warm, golden tones of the image add to the cozy feeling of the scene, making it the perfect image to showcase the beauty of glowing moments.

Capturing these moments in photography is all about finding the right lighting and composition. Whether it’s the vibrant colors of a sunrise or the soft glow of a candle, there’s always something magical about these moments that we want to hold onto forever. So next time you come across a glowing moment, don’t hesitate to capture it in a photograph and share it with the world. Who knows, it might just inspire someone else to create their own glowing moment.

  1. Your photo really engaged me. What a fabulous image, fit for the brush of a Dutch still life painter. Then your news knocked me sideways. I’m really rooting for you. My daughter had a really difficult diagnosis some seven years ago. It wasn’t easy, but she’s as well as the next woman now, so I hope this is what you’ll be able to say too. When I get home, I’ll send you a link to the blog that she wrote at the time. It’s very blunt – and funny too – but for that reason, you may find it helpful. Sending hugs and positive thoughts xx
