Chances are you have spent sometime around candlelight this week. Maybe you and your Valentine enjoyed a romantic dinner that included a candle on your table. Or maybe you just set the mood at home because Valentine's Day was a Tuesday.

No matter how it happens we all know that candlelight can set a mood. It can deliver a feeling of relaxation. And to be honest it can also be a welcome break from all the LED lighting in the world. So many people use artificial light sources nowadays. Whether it is a gadget on your photo or a selfy light everyone is trying to change the lighting to set a mood or create a look.

Where to find Natural Candles in the Hudson Valley

I am going to just throw this out there, why not try candlelight? The soft glow is perfect for hiding imperfections that you would be washing out in some artificial filter. If you think I am wrong try this experiment. Go into any room in your home and take a photo under regular lighting then turn off the lights and take that same photo by candlelight only. I think you will be amazed at the result.

Being a candle fan also allows you to collect candle holders. It can be fun to collect different types. Hudson Valley antique and thrift stores are a great place to look. One of my favorite candles to burn is made by Mole Hollow Candles in Sturbridge, MA. But they aren't the only place you can get hand-dipped candles. As a matter of fact, we have some amazing candle stores right here in New York.
