Standard ligt bulb burnout shot. However I couldn't manage to break one without breaking the filament so I had to very carefully mend the filament and eventually I got this.
Far from what I wanted but I ran out of time.

I THINK this might be a broken lightbulb but can't quite tell. It's a little too abstract for me

Awesome! I'm really curious how many takes before you captured this one. I assume you were able to reuse the same broken light & just kept replacing the filament, but I've never tried this sort of thing. Looks fun & worth trying.

Great shot! There's something with DPC and shattered light bulbs.

Great idea. I would have liked to see the smoke sharper and I am not sure that the negative space on the right works.

Great attempt and works well in B&W ... I only wish there was more dof.. to get the smoke in focus properly!
