I had to enlist my wife Amanda for this one. I stuck the chilli on a kebab stick and into a piece of modelling clay to hold it upright, against a black muslin backdrop. I used a snooted speedlite on 1/32 power below and behind the chilli for the rim light and hand held another speedlite above and to the right at 1/8 power. Amanda then ran an extinguished piece of burning news paper behind the chilli. I simply removed the kebab stick and newspaper in photoshop.
