Thank You!

I just cut the top of the bulb off, soldered some leads to the backside of the base, and glued a bit of armature wire to the back as well to hold it up. Plugged the bulb into an extension cord reel next to the camera while holding down the shutter button in burst mode. Then I cloned out the cables where they ran down from the bulb into the rocks.
It took 3 bulbs to get the timing right. There's a strobe overhead to light the rocks and reflectors on the side of the bulb to help shape the glass.

Sounds about right Altho I was sooprize you
didn't run the wiring straight back thru a hole in
in the background to hide them from the lens ...

Since you did 3 shots, did the other 2 produce
any cool "jellyfish" like the one hovering above
the bulb in the posted image ?

Really cool concept. I like that you put the top of the bulb on the rocks. Nice lighting too.
