OK I confess, this is a prop that I was given as a gift a few years ago. It really stinks as a light and this is the only value it has had in its existence.

I like the glass/paper effect (I'll have to file that away for future reference)! Well done in finding a purpose for this crazy "Spencer Gifts" sort of light bulb. Congrats on the yellow man!

Would be great if you invented an alternate light source that doesn't use electricity. But 3rd place with a photo is a could alternative for now. Keep cranking the light.

Sooo ... how long do those last and how much electricity do they use? :)

How'd you make that?

I like how you styled the lighting in this shot, the quick fade to black and the blue toned reflection... very nice.
