Tongues of fire

1/80", f/8, ISO 100, EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Canon T3i was mounted on a tripod. Focus was done manually using Live View mode and x10 digital zoom.
Subject was lighted using a wirelessly triggered flash (Yongnuo YN560 II) whose output was diffused with a piece of tracing paper held about two inches in front of the head. Had the flashgun within inches of the subject and so only had to set it to its minimum power of 1/128 (with flash zoom set to 105mm). Trigger was the Canon T3i's pop up flash.

I took three shots. The first had the flash on the left side. Then I tried lighting the subject from the top. The above image was lit from the bottom. It looks much better than the other two.

I cropped the image and deepened the shadows in post. And changed the hue of this red flower.
