I started off using magazines i got for wal mart magazine to test out the lighting and how the fire would burn, and the best way to get it to burn. When it was the best fire with light. That's when i used the playboy magazine and tested different f stop's to see which one looked the best.

Hi from the C Club,

Fun shot fits your title and challenge.

Your lighting is a little harsh in this shot, I would bouncing a light or a different angle. Even in post processing you can adjust the exposure, which in this case may have been the way to go.

A tighter crop off the top would have helped with the DOF and POV here. Cropping off the bottom would get rid of the line that separates the shot. You kinda chopped yoru knuckles off too!!

I would suggest a play with exposure, brightness and contrast and shadows and highlights to make this photo pop a little more, it is fairly flat right now.

Great capture of the flames.

Scored this well but would have liked to see less of the shadowing by using a different angle or bounce flash.

judging from the front page i wouldn't say this contains Porn. Nice idea, though. Lighting is a bit harsh
