008/365  Old meets new008/365 Old meets new

 

Day 8

Probably last of the new Christmas gift photos for the 365 series.

This beautiful lantern is awesome... looks like a nice old time lantern. But inside, is a new LED lit candle. So old meets new on this one. Love the character of this item. Trying to find just the right spot for it. Any suggestions?

 

Photo info:  played with ambient light in the room for this one.  Didn't want to flash it.  Room as a bit dark, so I turned on lights to get the right balance for the room light and the LED candle light.  In the end, lighting the Christmas tree added just the right amount of light for this shot.
Lessons learned:  Hmmmmmm.  Candles are pretty?  I know, look at the histogram! That's always a good one.  And watch the white balance as different sources of light are thrown in the mix.
