  Flambe @ My Place, Coventry, West Midlands, UK Thursday 12th January 2006 
I've started to play with food photography, and set up a simple shot this evening of flambeeing. I've taken thousands of photos of fire performing in the past few years so know roughly what i'm doing. I didn't bother composing the shot that well and I didn't use a remote, i just wanted to see what light levels are like from burning brandy that's all. Just an experiment really. Anyway, I took the precaution of holding the match at the end of a pair of scissors and got everything ready. Normally when i flambee thou the pan isn't as hot as it obviously was with no food in it and when the brandy hit the bottom it started to boil instantly. I knew i didn't have long so lit straight away and wow. The fireball hit my cooker hood and glanced the side of my face. No burns, but a few stray hairs got singed! :D I really wasn't expecting the flames to be so big, had I known I'd have set up the camera differently and in the shot bellow you'd be able to see the fire surrounding the cooker hood, but oh well! It came out better than i thought, so decided to upload a copy here :)
