Going green

Thought I would turn on the light bulb and use my energy efficient battery operated light source. This is the new way to save the earth and its my small part in going green. First my water bottle and now this. The technology has been out there for several years but the electric companies have suppressed the technology to retain stockholders in local energy companies.

OK, OK, not really but it sounded like a good lead story for our leaders of the world.
I played in photoshop with the background. The light bulb was not enhance or illuminated in any way once inside photoshop but I used my Blending mode to bring out the illumination from the bulb to the background mud cracks. (linear burn) Here is my set up, once again pretty crude. off camera flash at full power, homemade snoot, Plexiglas, and my pocket wizards.
f11~~1/100~~ISO200~~158mm w/tamron 28-300


  1. Great idea and well executed - I was tempted to use some shocking puns...

    Thanks for the set-up - always nice to see. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Very cool Lance! Reminds me of the one by David Hobby on Strobist! I think I might have to copy you one of these days...

  3. I like your method - and results - cool!
