Used the candle's own light to make it appear from the dark. To make the candle seem more like out of the dark I slight blew some air on the flame so that it moved. (5 years and 1723 days ago)

It's so simple yet so well focused. GL!

author says:

Thank you. I had very hard time focusing as the auto-focus didn't really work in the dark nor could I really use my tripop becaus my new camera and lens are simply too heavy for it. It makes me really happy to hear that I managed to get it done nicely after all those tries.

Here's a tip.Turn your focus to manual & with the lights on , focus on the fuse of the candle.Spot metering (so the camera gets light from the flame when you turn the lights off & you will have high shutter speed to "freeze" the flame)Turn the lights off & here you are...Try it & you will see that it's easy....

author says:

karaflazz, I did basically what you said. I did use manual focusing because the autofocus didn't really work and spot metering as well. Though, I didn't use the high shutter speed because I didn't want the flame to freeze totally(this way the flame appears little bigger than it actually is because of the movement). The biggest issue with this picture was that I couldn't use the tripod, which made the focusing little hard.
