    Can others edit my Photos:

    Meter the light off the candles in the scene. Set the camera to spot metering if you can and make sure the surrounding lights are turned down or off to give the background that dark scene.

    I just took some tonight using my digital. I haven't uploaded them yet, but I have a feel they'll be decent. PM me and we'll compare techniques and tips!
