Long ago we tried this candle light photography with the subject being my toddler son Lokashyam. The occassion was Kaarthigai Deepam and we used some 5 agals (lamps) for lighting. The special experiment motivated my neighbour to get involved in making the baby smile, which helped us to complete the session quickly.
Its really tricky because it was practically impossible to make a toddler to respond to your commands.

The experiment was so tricky because my toddler was just 6 months then and should not be put to hardship. Luckily we closed the session withing 10 minutes and getting a wonderful portaiture for our life time.
