Raining so heavily tonight....was thinking of taking some close ups b4 I go sleep :D

So found myself this red light bulb and decided to use some manual controls this time.....



Shutter Speed: 1 sec
Aperture: F3.2
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 71mm



Shutter Speed: 1/3 sec
Aperture: F2.3
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 71mm

Found it to be quite difficult as the bulb was pretty dark red in colour :(

Comments pls? Which one of the above looks nicer?

Thanks!

How about taking the bulb when it is lit? If you can connect a dimmer to it, you can photograph a glowing filament without over-exposing it.

Light box is usually a rectangular box fitted with lights and a translucent white plastic panel used for viewing slides or negatives.

You can see it in most photo developing labs.

I believe ck's suggestion is to back lit the bulb to enhance the appearance of the red glass of the bulb. Am I right, ck?
