There are times when I´ve been unable to distinguish a photo from a painting. Because I so admire a photographer who can achieve such an effect, I´m always experimenting to see if I, too, can "paint" an image with my camera. I took this picture indoors, camera hand held, using a black cloth as a backdrop and ordinary indoor window and lamp light. I tweaked only the brightness to get the soft oranges and greens and, VOILA! I got exactly what I was looking for.
