How to photograph fireplace images in glamour/beauty style

YouTube link:

FreePhotographyTips - - A fireplace is a lovely place. You can feel the heat, smell the wood, hear the fire crackling. But using it in the scene for a lingerie photo is a little bit more tricky than one might expect. All of a sudden the light of the fire is not so magic anymore. This is where pull out our brave speedlight and place it right next to the fire in order to make our light sing. It brings us images of the fireplace that really feel like a fireplace: hot and intensive.
