Here we catch a light bulb filament going up in a shot I call “Light My Fire.” Which is a reference to The Doors, and the fact that its a light, and its on fire. Ok, I’m out of ideas on naming these light bulb photos.
(Straight Out Of Camera)
Nikon 105mm f/2.8
- Exposure, contrast, shadows, and whites raised
- Highlights and blacks lowered
- Clarity and vibrance raised
- Saturation lowered
- Tone curve added
- Noise reduction
- Lens corrections
Rotated and expanded the canvas…
Content aware filled missing stuff, cloned the rest of the base and healing brushed any weirdness…
Added a color gradient and set it to color burn to add some color interest…
Curves brightness and level adjustments added.
I haven’t tried making any of these light bulb shots in a while… I want to eventually do them with the light bulb on, and no base, so the light bulb is floating in the air. So basically I’m planing my own electrocution this winter.
