I had a fancy to shoot something which felt wintery and maintain my denial at the passing odf the light sumery evenings, luckily the heating was on full and we found an old candlabra under the neighbours stairs, so Lisa and i spent a half hour fooling with getting candles organised, and ten minutes shooting, thought I'd share.

Yes that's all very well but what were you doing rooting about under your neighbour's stairs

Far from house breaking, my neighbour is an expert in oil paintings, Gainsborough specifically. It's a communal cupboard thingy to our flats, which I generally don't go use. On this occasion, noticing the broken candelabra, it was borrowed briefly and returned. I expect he'll be pleased to see it used once he's checked the pictures

Nice work. Although the first one did make me fear for your model's Kitty Fur. Although I guess one Lady Fart, might have saved the day. Sorry, I've had a very heavy weekend. Dave

Crippen, don't apologise just leave any notion of humour to one side in the future, it's not your thing. Cheese seems to be your thing?

ANy closer, and those candles could have led to "saw tips".

Christ there's some cretins on this site.

Humour (and for that matter, photography) have continued to progress since Benny Hill, come join us in 2013 perhaps?

I'd suggest the inclusion of the 'four candles' title probably instigated that style of humour in the first place.

Four candles was intended to be light hearted yes, it's the pathetic jokes about nudity I'm fed up with. it's not even schoolboy humour of any quality.

I'm rather looking forward to some contributors to the thread offering up their work as a share excercise though, assuming they actually ever shoot anything, and assuming they've any interest in contributing rather than just being lewd like an elderly uncle at Christmas, oh, and assuming their stuff isn't bland uninteresting dross reminiscent of a well thumbed underwear section from a 1980's catalogue?

I agree that the phanar, phanar, comments are non contributory to the imagery, though by invoking the Two Ronnie's classic, you, yourself, rather took it down a notch.
I think the second image (though not actually 4 candles) is very atmospheric and interesting.

The "saw tips" / "sore tips" pun was a defining moment of the "Fork Handles" sketch.

Okay, so these pictures.....

I like the set up and idea of them, however I don't think the pose in the first one is overly flattering, and I'd consider having the candelabra off-centre, simply because (as others have latched onto), it does appear that she's toasting her nether regions.

Purely a matter of taste, but the candles are too white for my liking. To me, an old candelabra should have old candles, and so I'd get them to be a "dirty ivory" sort of colour. The flickering flame in the third shot is great though.
