Adrian -- so many things to appreciate in this image: the lines, the light, the creativity; the composition and more. A poetic image!

Absolutely fascinating image! I like the bits of color in the base and what seems to be some of the original frosted bulb. And I especially like the light and shadow in the plume of smoke. Thanks for the link, I may have to try this.

Adrian - great that you found something new to experiment with - and even better that you had such success right off the bat - great image - simple and perfectly composed in my book. No clutter

Funny how things go. I have just purchased a super-cool "Trigger Trap" device that will use my iPhone to trigger my camera or flash. It can do the usual stuff (push a button, delay, etc) but it can also trigger based on cool things such as sound, vibration, or even face recognition. It is relatively inexpensive, so I'm really happy. I was keen to use it this week to do some high speed photography and have a picture of an exploding lightbulb. That would have impressed me ;-) But in the end I was reluctant to make such a big mess! Instead I found a tutorial on how to photograph a burning filament - it burns when exposed to air. So you break the glass in a controlled way, carefully screw the broken bulb into a socket, get the camera ready, then turn on the power to the bulb. It is pretty fun. Here's the tutorial that I used, which has details on exposure and other settings
