Flaming Martini

Photographing a flaming martini shot was one photo I have always wanted to try.  Doing this took a lot of trial and error, but in the end I found a way to make it work to exactly what I wanted.  The scariest part of this experience was when I lit the lighter fluid on fire in my tiny bedroom.  It wasn’t a small flame like I anticipated, it was roaring.  I knew I could only keep the flame on fire for a few seconds so it wouldn’t explode and that thought frightened me.  I can’t wait for the next opportunity to try more flame shots when I can find a proper area to do it in.  I can honestly say I am proud of this shot.
