I don't have any studio light nor any professional studio equipment. I just want to test if I can do this with limited resources. I want to take such a photo for a long time. Now I did it, with two big black card-board, a lamp, a few bulbs and a cut in my finger. Alhough I know the noise is noticable as the ISO is high, due to inadequate lighting, I hope you like this shot. :D

More broken glass! I wouldn't like to imagine how much glass was broken for this challenge! You had a good idea here, you didn't have to go round breaking good drinking glasses, just old light bulbs. Good work, I love the graininess here it works well.

I have seen too many like this, and most of them catch a better moment

Too much negative space at the top I think

I had a similar idea, but I thought it would be too hard to shot by myself. I would have liked to have seen a shot closer to the time on impact. Also More light and a faster shutter speed. Overall very good.

Good stop action shot. I don't know if this shot is grainy, or the background material is grainy looking but something here is slightly amiss.

Very difficult to pull of isn't it. I blew up 7 light bulbs before I quit and moved on to something else. looks a bit grainy. Mostly high ISO because of the needed increased shutte speed. Might want to pass it through Neat Image. Jacko. 8 for effort

A little bit too much noise... but I can live with it :) Good stopped motion picture

Would have been neat with a solid black background with the light shining straight down on it. The action is very nice... I suggest also zooming in so you get more of the action and less of the background.Too much empty space.

too dark

NIce capture, but the photo is very grainy. I guess you needed to use a higher ISO setting to capture the glass in stop motion.

high ISO? It's really grainy, but that doesn't actually take away from it for me. Great timing...and interesting use of an...ashtray(?) to smash the bulb on.

How many light bulbs did you break to get this one??
