light-bulb.jpg

The second in the lighting series. Still a tungsten bulb. Hard to believe that this little guy is what lights my dining room up. For this photo I had a choice. I had one image that was sharp, crisp, clear on every detail. And then I had this one. Which has a much shorter depth of field. The element really is the only thing in focus. But this is a much more beautiful image because of that. Light bulbs get dirty, ugly, spotted like any glass. Odd. this is the first one I took tonight with no thought. Before I went and adjusted the camera to capture a technically "better" image. Sometimes you get lucky.
