Turning on the Light

Old Light Bulbs
Old Light Bulbs / Digital / 2013 / Terry Long

My medium is light, and after taking a photograph of some vintage light bulbs, I decided to bring them back to life. It was a chance to  experiment with some of the photoshop digital filters and effects, including solarization, glowing edges, and flare, which made the bulbs appear to light up. I also used contrast and lighting controls for post production.

This is the original photo that I took on my Nikon D200 digital SLR with a 28-105 mm lens. The bulbs were backlit.
