Dinner by Candlelight

Each table at Lincoln Restaurant was lit by candles in these glass lanterns. They gave off the perfect amount of light and created such a beautiful glow off of all of the copper elements in the dining room.

Photographing candles can be tricky. In my experience, it is best to turn off your flash before taking the picture. Not using the automatic flash allows the true color of the scene and the glow of the candle appear closer to how you saw it. While your final image may be darker, the candlelight will look more authentic and appealing than if you used flash photography.
