Found this image, and through it was fun to make the light bulb lit just standing in front of an outlet.

So I took that idea, and used advanced editing to get a similar result.

I used two flashes. One to light the bulb (it had a snoot, to keep the light narrow. The other was bounced off the ceiling to light the background a bit.

Good rendition of the earlier image. If that bulb were a little sharper, this would be even more fun.

Photoshop can solve that.

Voted earlier coming back to vote.

The light is lit!!! Different bulb than the original but I think in this redux it is better because it fills out the frame more. Overall the photo is a bit dark which does help make the lightbulb pop more off the background, but the drawback is that the outlet is too much in the shadows that it gets lost. I think that this would be better if the exposure was a bit brighter either through slower shutter speed paired with lower aperture to let more light in or perhaps in PP with Levels and Curves.
