Yes I actually set jeans on fire.
My neighbors thought I was mad at my husband seeing I was outside with scissors, clothes, and a lighter.
I cut the back out of 2 pairs of old size "never gonna where em again" jeans. I cut a small hole in the bottom of the pocket and removed the material behind the pocket so the hole was through and through.
A slight torch from a cigarette lighter and drive mode on the camera. I took over 100 photos (4 different pockets) and had a hard time choosing which one I liked the best.
This was my choice. Hope you like it as well.

I enjoyed reading your description! My first instinct when I saw this was that you used a Photoshop filter to create the flames... but it was too good to be anything but real flames. Way to go! Treat yourself to a new pair of pants! :)

Very clever idea, well done. Costly photo though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I predict this will score at least in the top ten! What's there to say, technically great (as far as I can tell), creative & fits the challenge well. Nice job!

One of the very few that doesn't need a title to connect it to the challenge - nice concept executed very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2003 02:50:29 PM
Great, creative idea and shot well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2003 11:34:12 AM
Very interesting concept. I am sure would have done miracles in the Literalism challenge. But I think you've heard this before. 10

Great idea and very well executed. In my top 5 for this challenge. In Holland they say you have a hole in your hand, when you are spending to much money. Maybe for next time ?

Interesting concept and photo.

Great idea and very well done!

And this must have also been inspired by the Literalisms challenge. Very clever. Nice textures too, well caught.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2003 06:51:52 PM
Technical: Fits the challenge, exposure, composition and focus are good, lighting is even.
Personal: I think it's a good idea and it's interesting to look at- and I like the border!
How many pairs of jeans did you have to ruin for this shot?!?!?

My vote: 7.

Good color, I like the detail.

Did that hurt????

Beautiful burning capture,10 here!

Very creative idea! Sharp picture with great composition. Hope you didn't burn too much cloth to get this shot, lol!

Pretty much the only photo this week that stood out. Although I wish the jeans weren't so dark.

I had the same exact idea in mind, but I didn't have any old jeans worth burning! :) You did an excellent job with this photo, I think it should be in the running for a ribbon. Excellent job!!
