This is my mom. Such a trooper, she always comes through when I ask her to model for me

To ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' willem: it's both. The candlelight (from a 3-candle candelabra) was assisted by a small LED light panel i use for Zoom. It was indeed a tad low ...oh well.

Handsome study of this scholarly, possibly medieval figure. Except for the bifocals. The candlelight knits it all together.

Love the light and atmosphere. Nice old book (and lady ;-) ) as well. Top image. The actual light source is not the candle, right? Looks to be a bit lower and to the left? A reflector?
