Moody Moodyness in Candle Light
There was a snow storm raging all evening, and I was all cozied up inside with a cup of tea. When the sun was setting, I decided to light up a candle on the balcony, inside a big jar, surrounded by massive deer antlers. I have moose antlers set up high on the balcony, but these deer ones are a new addition to my interiors. I adopted them from my sister because she felt like she didn't have enough space for them at the moment. I ain't mad about that.
I was feeling real moody and with all the school work that had made me create pictures I normally wouldn't, I was feeling rather uninspired. I texted my friend @kommienezuspadt and bitched about speed lights, and then scrolled through his photography book Dark Pinup for inspiration which made me feel all better.
With the storm outside, cool toned lights on the yard, and the warm soft candle light on the balcony, I found it very fitting to do a little shoot. You know I had to add some smoking and a gin&tonic to this too, to create a kind of hunting lodge feel. I'll have more pictures from this shoot up later today, those where I am actually in focus.
Shot with the Nikon D750 and Sigma 85mm f/1.4.
