Fairy Log Cabin is Complete

These are the "night time" shots showing the cabin's self contained LED lighting. I built this cabin from a kit and my partner completed all of the interior and exterior "decorations"
The Exterior shot is illuminated with 4 unique light sources, and the time exposure shot is about 30 seconds long. The four light sources are:
1 reduced ambient light from our stained glass table lamp across the living room.
2. The two small LED lamps, one on the exerior by the door and the other inside on the small table.
3 The warm lower position exterior was lit by a small tea candle.
4 The roof is highlighted with a short 1/2 second burst from a small hand held LED flash light.
Our goal with this lighting was to simulate a campfire's light off camera...with a hint of moonlight reflecting off of the corrugated metal roof.
These few night shots complete the set for our submissions for a book inclusion. This house if one of a few we have completed over the years. Just because its small.... about 16" high...does not mean it gets built much faster than a full sized cabin.

    Love this! I am currently working on a fairie garden with a mix of houses I am making, as well as store bought (Michael's and Joanne Fabric's). This has inspired me with new ideas. Thank you!
