Wow.. Talk about a one time shot.  Were you hesitant about lighting it on fire?  Amazing work.

I'm imagining the sadness of not catching a good photo in the process. :D The cutout looks great with and without fire. I wonder if you could catch a photo of the burnt reminiscence.

Thank you! :)

I made the bird with stiff drawing paper, and I glued all of the pieces to each other with Elmer's glue.

I am currently writing on a book and had more or less this exact idea for the cover.. therefore I am pretty speechless now (except it would be an origami angel). I admire your work. May I ask how you executed your concept? is it all just one picture or are the flames partly photoshopped etc? and how did you take the photo so nicely?

Thanks! This is actually two different pictures, one of the bird not on fire (right half) and one of the bird partially on fire (left half). I merged the two together because it is really hard to photograph fire and also have the un-burnt paper look good at the same time.

Good luck with your book :)

An excellent idea and a well-composed idea.  Tell me this wasn't the first bird you burned and just one of several tries that turned out well?

What an awesome idea! I love the black background and minimalist approach to this.

Sucks about thieves though. :/ I think the watermark is fine/doesn't take away from it at all, honestly.

I'm not surprised, it's 9gag after all, and they claimed it as their 'school project' that 'they' set on fire. Then again, most people on 9gag tend to know that the OP is often a liar.

You're welcome, it's a rocking photo ^^
