Great photo of wonderful young natural beauty. Perfect setting with lighting controlled perfectly to set the theme aflame (pun intended). "Everything has beauty but most often the photographer sees it first." ErnestO

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in a park, close to Leiden, the Netherlands.
Time
The picture was taken around 5:30 pm. I have never worked with dusk before, so it was pretty challenging for me.
Lighting
I used a 'led video lighting' with a yellow filter, to light up my model. The candles had to light up her face for a mysterious effect.
Equipment
I worked with a Nikon D3300, 50mm 1.8 lens. As said before, I also used a 'led video lighting' I like to move around freely, so I did not use a tripod for this shot.
Inspiration
I always loved candles. As a kid I could stare for hours at the little flames of it. So I came up with the idea to photograph them. I also prefer photographing people. So I thought: why not combine them? That's pretty much how I came up with the idea.
Editing
Yes, I did! Actually I always do, never miss a chance to improve your photo, right? I lit up the picture a bit, added a little contrast, a little extra blue and green, and played around with the curves.
In my camera bag
My camera(obviously), a 50mm 1.8 and a 18-105 lens, a reflector, an extra battery and SD card (these can really save your life) and my video led light. Oh and not to forget: something to eat!
Feedback
Most important, make sure (if you are in the woods) that the environment is moist. You really do not want to start a fire! A fixed focal lens will capture more light, so thats the best pick. Don't be scared to use a higher ISO, it will make things a lot easier.
