Happy New Year!

I discovered Georges de La Tour's work last year and have been wanting to do a candle shot since. It's been sitting on my to-do forever and I had so many tests and false starts with the lighting I was worried it would never work. I'm happy to finally have something to share now~

This is so far my favorite photograph in Motherland Chronicles. She resembles St. Lucy.

Beautiful.  A very rich, painterly image.  If she wasn't a real person I'd say it was a highly idealised fantasy. Wonderful lighting.

The light of a candle in the centre of the image represents the year where the girl or young woman is place is like a saint, with soft flowing hair, elegantly dressed and matching necklace.
