Thread: Light

  1. #1

    Light

    The last of the tungsten light-bulbs. Shot in low-light conditions using a table-lamp fitting with a power dimmer to get a very low level of power (I think the bulb was 40W). F5.6, 1/125s. I used Photoshop 'glowing edges' to get the rim around the bulb.

    Better on black

    Comments welcome.

    Re: Light

    Good idea to lit it.
    I really like the pure red and blue colours you get, though I don't like the white reflection at the bottom that much. Would a CPL be useful for this, or did you already use one?

    I'm a bit dim today - what's a CPL? The white reflection is a softbox on a stand. I'm thinking that I should have had more of a darkened room to stop reflections like that - there must have been enough light from the lamp filament.
