Flamin' Toast!

By starstriders
This was shot for my A-level project on breakfast advertising 4yrs ago. It was to go with a slogan like: "Fed up of this in the morning? Then buy our new brand of toaster....etc. etc." You get the idea. The pic is small and low res as it came from a slide and I've not had it scanned properly yet!

The toast was supported on copper rods that fed into the backdrop. The toast was soaked in lighter fluid and then lit - voila! Teacher nearly lost his eyebrows lighting this for me! LOL!

Yeah it was a second shoot - the first was done for GCSE and although it was ok, it looked a bit static. So for the still life assignment at A-level I decided to reshoot it making a few alterations to the reflection in the toaster surface and the method of shooting (basically to get the flames really alive on the film). It was really good fun to do, not to mention a real fire hazard!

love this image. At first I thought it was a digitally manupulated composite. The fact that it is a straight image is very commendable indeed.

Hi, I did my A-levels at school. Mine was a traditional photography digital allowed.

You're best bet is to contact your local college who do higher courses. AS-level, A-level, City & Guilds etc. Ring up for brochures and go from there. Hope that helps.
