This is a series of 7 images bracketed in camera and then blended in PS CS6. I have really been obsessed with light bulbs and different kinds of filaments and so forth.
This is a “squirrel-cage” light bulb that I laid on a glass table with a patterned paper behind with a tiny slit cut into it. I back-lit the table with a hot light to get this warmer yellow color. I’m really happy with my result using Photoshop to make an HDR photo.
