Burning A Memory

"I once owned a diary that I wrote every regret in...."

A sneak peek from my book burning photoshoot
more to come.

NOTE: Yes, I get it.. I am burning a book! I apologies to all the book lovers but please stop commenting about how you feel sorry for the book. I only burned a book once and it was only for this concept. I do not plan to do it again. It was not a blank book, it was a book about politics and the book was given to the model to help with her art project.
I am a book lover myself, but was needed for this concept.
Also, playing with fire is dangerous. If you ever want to try something like this be super careful and make sure you do this outdoors unless if you are super experienced.

Thank you for your support everyone!

Hi. This image would be perfect for the cover of my book, would it be possible to use it? Obviously I would credit you on the back cover. I'm only a self-published author - so nothing too exciting I'm afraid! My book is on Amazon if you'd like to check it out first (with the current cover) - it is called Few by Matt Wilks . Thank you in advance!
P.S. If you don't want to allow it that's fair enough - I won't be offended!

Would I be able to get permission to use this as a background for a quote? It would likely be used to support my poetry novel. I don't want to use your comment board to advertise, so if you think it would be ok, please contact me and we can discuss usage and rights. I'm asking one time use rights with copyright reference to you. Many thanks!

amazing work.
In a perfect world, you'd make a whole book like this.

That opening line: "I once owned a diary that I wrote every regret in...."

Can I turn that into a song? It's perfect.

Thanks much! If I ever finish it (which is unlikely. I'm waaay too perfectionistic), I'll share it with you!
Beautiful work !
To dispel regrets in flame seems appropriate ;)

This is hypnotizing, seriously excellent work! If I may offer some honest criticism, I think this would've been much more powerful if the focus was on the model's eyes, but nonetheless this is stunning! Well done!!!!

How did you get the fire to light like that on the paper, so even?

I'm a book lover who doesn't feel the least bit sorry for the book. Burn, baby burn! MWAHAHA!!! I also love this image, it's gorgeous! Just looking at it unlocks crazy plot-lines in my mind, excellent work! ^_^
