bougies et serviettes

30" x 40", oil on canvas, 2002

For this Interior I lit the bathroom only with the tea light candles I placed around the rim of the sink and used a long enough exposure to get me the image. I never keep records of my camera settings (f-stop, etc.) so I'm always winging it with each photo, usually going by the camera's internal light meter. Once again, I used a blue filter to colour-correct the image --otherwise, it would have been extremely yellow because of the low light and the candles as the light source.

I particularly like the way the light's reflecting off the door on the left and the tiles on the right.
