Thank you, Michelle. I'm so happy you like it. Yes, I did have aluminum foil beneath the candles, however it's primary purpose was to keep candle wax from falling onto the table. Secondarily, it also added light to her face. The bulk of the light, however, comes from the bounced flash off the ceiling. It just happened that she was wearing the perfect outfit. Getting my kids to change clothes or comb their hair for a shot is a major production, so I was just lucky when it came to her clothing. Here's a shot of the whole setup. I did a little bit of burning in of the foil beneath because it was too distracting.
Happy New Year!
All the best,
Strad, do I understand correctly that you used a piece of aluminum foil to reflect the light on her face? The shot is lovely! You are very good with Light! It's nice how her clothing goes right along with the theme colors!
