Anyhow set alight to the bottom corner and hold the paper upright and let the flame rise. Another trick is to mix it up in a bunch of papers and throw into a fire as a reem when you see blackening spreading your there.
Anyhow the photo looks good to me. The glow around the flame could do with not being there though. A quill and spilt ink may have been a nice touch (instead of the wine). Not saying it would look better just an idea that popped in my mind. Funny you post this as is was only yesterday I had an urge to do a photo with candle and candle light, did get round to it though as the laptop was being slow so I set it to maintenance.
After another look I may have been tempted to light the glass slightly with a torch or something.
I an't believe you know about burning paper like that! lol.....Sadly i don't have a quil and ink, and a torch is an excellent idea but I kinda wanted that corner to be dark. Will have another go at this though when I return from sunny Tenerife!!!!!!
The best photo's are always taken by someone else
