It's sharing time!!

This was submission and again didn't do well so no worries with that but what did I do to get this shot?

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2985/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1246001.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2985/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1246001.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Camera was on a tripod with 20 seconds exposure time, in here I used GoDox V1 flash pointing up on the ceiling ( we have white ceiling) to get bounce of the light so that my glasses won't have flash light show up but since it would be defused so my eyes will show up as I was expecting it to be.

Next I use fiber optics cable toy (yup I got that for $5 from Amazon), it came with it's own light but was very low power so I dismantle the item, removed the light part that came with it. next I fixed the fiber optics cable on top of the the cone shape plastic came with that and underneath was hollow. Next I used a torch and place inside that so that no light from the torch fall off from the sides of bottom when movement of the fiber optics were happening.

Model is me, setup the timer on, I have trigger the light and as soon as the flash goes off my wife walks behind me and rotate the fiber optics cable around me. In this case when she was walking behind me, it the torch was off and once she is behind me, she turned on the torch and then played around with the movement and that captured during rest of the shutter opening.

That's cool, Girish!

I think it would have scored better in a different challenge topic.
