For week eight I decided to try a shot I had seen in a trick photography ebook I've been reading. Simply place a small flash light or LED light behind the light bulb to illuminate it from behind. It gives the illusion that the bulb is lit without being plugged into anything. Any other bright ideas?
Week 9 was pretty busy, so I took a few images of "Buddy" our new family member who we found wondering the neighborhood for the past nine months or so, and decided he needs a REAL home. He's settling in pretty nicely with our other two cats.
I call this image "Goody, Goody Gumdrops." I've been wanting to try some underlighting in my photography, so I bought some gumdrops and put them on top of a clear container with a video LED light underneath for illumination. I added a bit of side light using a garage utility light. Nothing fancy. I used an 18-55 kit lens with a macro lens attached.
