      @BTS - So how did I do this?

    6. memetic 79 months ago | reply

      Nicely done. Did you get it to light up by putting it in an electric field (ie. near a high voltage source like an arc welder)?

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      @Adam - I am going to do another photo with this lamp and then I will tell. However, I can assure you that there is no post trick to this photo.

    11. Broken Toy Shop 79 months ago | reply

      Two ways.
      These bulbs glow for a while after they power off, so you may have done a long exposure after switching it off and unplugging it.
      The other way is, you could have soldered wires on to the back of the bulb, out of shot.

      @BTS - You are the winner! - The second option is correct. Plus I ran the wires through a pipe so I could mount the light on a tripod.

      Great photo, lighting is really nicely done. Also love that we are getting to move from the old school bulbs to CFLs in cultural imagery of a "light bulb".

      I was inspired by the shot and used it (thanks to your CC licensing) in an application I made (as we haven't gotten to any graphics yet!). Have a look at tinyurl dot com slash peakinnovation (sorry it's not linked - some silly flickr restriction).
