Still life

Here's a shot that I wanted to make for some time. I was inspired by this photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/just10/398393975/
For this assignment we had to make composition of three objects. Despite knowing how the lighting should be, it was more difficult than I expected. Reflections from other photographers' lights, depth of field and most important safely getting the vodka on fire and hoping that the glass won't crack...

If you understand Dutch, you can read a more elaborate essay on my blog: http://foto-ernst.blogspot.com

Erg mooi met zo'n 'gemiddelde' wodka-vlam. Leuke normaalverdeling zou de statisticus zeggen....
