    Lightbulb How is this picture taken?

    Hello, this is a picture taken of electrico. I have always looked at pictures taken in this technique. However I am not really sure of the techniques and lightings that are used. I think a graduation filter was used, including frontal lighting diffused with a softbox. I also assume a liberal usage of photoshop was used. I believe this techinque was also used in the UOB art award 2004 "decontructing contruction" However for that piece I don't think artifical lighting was used at all. Is this correct? Could someone provide me on some information on how this picture was taken? Is this a particular style of photography? Is there a term to this technique?

    I think you somehow got it. Don't think a grad filter is needed though. Essentially can just underexpose the background and further burn in the sky.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    I noticed that the location is where Brett took his "Phantom Bicycle" photos:

    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.
