CD Buner : How I did that?

The idea to capture this shot illustrating visual pun was playing in my mind from many days. I was unable to find the way to execute it without any accident & damage. I am not a great photoshop expert so it was not easy for me. Finally I did it using multiple exposure trick. I had used it very first time & really enjoyed it.

The details about the procedure are as:

1. I placed a paper in the background & on a box with my CD/DVD driver on it.

2. I used a flash for background on camera left while another flash on camera right, light bouncing from a white foam adding fill light to object. The flash were fired by using wireless trigger units.

3. I used a 10 sec exposure with camera on tripod.

4. I put on the timer & took my first exposure with flash light.

5. For avoiding fire drag after flash firing I blocked the lens with black piece , meanwhile the flame generated by camphor tablets on a spoon was moved on CD. then I removed black piece. During this period camera lens was blocked so no exposure.

6. Before removing that I have holed ND + tobacco filter in front of lens too avoid overexposure in the fire. The fire was moved all over the place & completed second exposure.

Don't worry everything is safe. Anyway I was playing with old CD/DVD burner.Thanks to my wife for assisting me to complete the shot. Many of you might be knowing this trick but I did it first time & excited about it. Hope you will like this :)

Even though there are no downloads, the 79 views speaks a lot for your idea and to execute it with perfection.
Good one.

good work.
actually, there is an even faster way if you use Photoshop liquid to make the fire effect.
there are several posts on the web on how to make this "fire" effect on the internet. just google it. it's a lot faster and more predictable.
but of course, you did a great job with your own .
