light bulb (dark field light)

    Newer Older

    Strobist: bulb in front of a4 black card which fills the camera frame exactly. YN-460 is then fired at full power into a reflector (A3 white card behind) it's called dark field lighting from the book "Light Science & Magic"

    The setup basically goes Camera>bulb>black card>flash>white card

    ...and I like it!

      Really do love this image - very unusual!
      I hope you don't mind, but I've used this in my blog post. The title is "the despair of inspiration", so this slightly intimidating lightbulb seemed really appropriate! Here is the post so you can see it:

      Nice shot! Did you dimmed the bulb almost to be off to get the yellow filament?
