Smokin' Hot

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.

Beautifully done - so many of your shots have me imagining the setting they would be displayed in - this one would make a fabulous accent in a very elegant & avant-garde restaurant or my dream kitchen! Lol

Thanks for the explanation. This is on my to do list; however I was told to use a steam iron...

@brianl And thanks for commenting. I must admit I never even thought about using a steam iron. It would have certainly prevented the smoke alarms in the house going off!

Good to read how it was done, Simon. The end effect looks so simple but very effective. FAV

This is wonderful. Love the pop of red and the smoke. Great work and a fav!

I like the way you say I simply removed the paper and stick in photoshop - so modest . Well done
