Comment by RedRuthann:
WOW, Thanks everyone for your votes and wonderful comments. artemis8 is absolutely correct, it is a rubbery covered lightbulb. I'm almost embarassed to say, but I went to Walmart just looking around for something to use for the photo, when I say this lightbulb - it was the only one and just laying in the housewares dept.

I was very excited about this photo, mostly because I actually got the black to look black! I was very determined to get that black right this time!!

I will post some outtakes tonight or tomorrow.

I started taking photos in my livingroom during the day and things were just not going right - frustrating - so, I said to myself...Self, you need to darken this place (tried closing the blinds - but still too much light)...mmm where in this house is there more dark?? OF COURSE, the Bathroom---WHAT a sight! the black foam board, my camera and tripod, a clamp light with the red lightbulb in this tiny bathroom with no windows, it was perfect! I took the shot with my 3 macro lens, camera in macro/spot mode and used A priority. I fooled around with the exposure settings...and after 50+ shots, viola...I got my photo.

I did not need to do much adjustments for this photo...I only cropped it a tad, and rotated it. I didn't need any color, gamma or tone adjustments...and the black was just black - I succeeded!!! What I found most difficult was to get the color and the focus correct as well as the right composition/or aspect of the lightbulb.

I can not express it well enough, but I have learned soooo much from this site and the people here. My first entry (Shadows) was a definate...Well I have to start somewhere..photo. Someone suggested to me..You should take a course in photography...you know what, this is a course in photography!! The best part about this 'course' is that you get just a wide range of experience, talent, view points. This challenge, I had 325 votes...can that compare to 1 teacher and perhaps 10 students - all located within a small area? Not likely

Thanks again...for the votes, comments and experience!!!

Comment by Gracious:
I'd like to know what this is. Red is such a photogenic color to begin with and it is perfect on black. I like it very much with the curves and subtle shading. One of my favorites! Please be sure to let us (me) know what it is and how you did it. Good luck in the challenge! Grayce aka Gracious
