Candlelight Portrait

Challenge #3 in the Pari's Series series. Hosted by Parinita Salian.
Challenge has finished
Capturing the warm glow of candlelight in photographs can be quite challenging. Faster lenses, using tripods and slower shutter speeds is the trick here. Try using reflectors to throw in some extra light. But to throw a spanner in the works, we're going to disqualify the most obvious subject - children (big and small) blowing out their birthday cake candles.
