CFL Study 1 - Glow

    Newer Older

    I was thinking of shooting a CFL for a daily contest on curves but chose a different subject. Then this daily contest came up, Light. So I went ahead and tried a few shots.

    These were taken with my Oly P&S, since I don't have a macro lens for my Canon 40D.

    WHAT TO DO IF YOU BREAK ONE! -insanity ensues-

    Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for the environment, right? Not so fast! The law of unintended, but avoidable consequences strikes again!
    Be sure you dispose of them properly!

    Yeah, these are so green...

      "Glow" rocks! Love the blue and the simplicity of the figure 8-like curves.

      Erica_Marshall Thanks! This must be a cliche image by now. This reminds me of the yin-yang.

      Did you use a light tent? Any other lighting besides the light of the bulb?

      This is really cool.

      dmzajac2004 <== I did not use a light tent. I had the bulb on, and no other light source.
