    Certainly not original but I've never given it a shot before and every photographer has to try a lightbulb, no?

      Thanks Urban and Matz. It is a Philips and I'll take the GettyImages comment as a compliment ;)

      Your work is definitely stock photo house worthy. I think you should start your own!

      Is this the sheet in field setup you used earlier? Tell us about your setup so everyone can learn the different ways of doing these. :)

    14. Paul Watson 112 months ago | reply

      Indeed, same setup as the other shot. All the white-background shots I have been posting lately have been made the same way. This one proved more of a challenge as ramping up the levels obliterated the details, so I had to be more careful.

      You can normally see the texture of the sheet in the shadows.

      Love this photo Paul. Seriously considered using it for a blog post on GreenMonk this morning but in the end went for one which, while not as good, was slightly more relevant :-(

      Well done sir.

      Just read that post of yours Tom, before I saw this comment. Really liked the one you chose. Also, my bulb is only a 60w, not a 100w ;)
