Night & Low Light 2011 — photo 4 of 18: An upcoming photo competition of the Valley Viewfinders Camera Club — of which I am a member — is entitled "shadows." As I was pondering what kind of photo I could take to enter in the competition, the idea of a shadow from my menorah formed in my inner eye. So I set up the menorah in my office, illuminated it with a small flashlight to create the shadow on the wall, lit the candles, and fired away with the camera. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I especially like the shadows of the flames. We'll see if I end up winning any awards at the February 2012 competition. Photo taken November 2011. You can also see a later menorah picture I took in December 2015. Camera used: Sony Alpha α77 with Sony Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
This photo won 1st place in the monthly competitions of the Valley Viewfinders Camera Club in Albany, Oregon.
