As I was taking a photo of a flower in a vase using this bulb as illumination to create a deep shadow I suddenly's an idea I've always wanted to do and never got round to it. An illuminating light bulb.

So I had a go. I may do it again when I have a free evening so I can set up the lighting better for the bulb , but you get the idea, and as a first attempt I'm quite pleased.

Two shots one with the bulb in a holder lit, the second with the bulb in its final position. I then merged the two in Photoshop, using layer mask to help the blend.
