Vintage Bulb

by Bryan March. 06, 2013 2367 views

I bought this “vintage” bulb at Home Depot. This is one of the things I wanted to photograph when I got the macro lens. I put different color paper behind the bulb (black, yellow and red) and tried different processing in Lightroom 4 (sepia, split toning, b&w), overall I like the variety and the way they turned out.

Edit 03/07/13: I added one shot of the bulb lightly frosted in flour (last one) per Revenant's suggestion. It does show off the shape of the glass:)

Used a red background here.

Almost looks like molten lava.

This and the ones like it have the yellow paper as the background.

What a fascinating idea. I'm starting to regret having installed "green" bulbs throughout the house. I think the first one wins the overall prize for composition and tone, although I'd like to see more of the glass. A very, very light coating of flour (it would implode with more) would do the trick.
