The trick is the bulb... lol naturally. take a lightbulb, tape a flashlight to the back and turn it on, then hang it from the ceiling and set up the rest of the shot... hope you enjoy

Wow, you did good getting the light buld 'lit'. I like being able to still see the metal screw at the bottom. You could've used one more light source to the right side of the picture to lighten your face, unless that's what you ment to do!? Nice. BB

Ok, goo idea, I give you that much. The light bulb is a bit large and a b it brighter than rest of the photo. You probably intent to do that way, I think your face should be a bit lighter too. Technically nice photo, sharpness, focused on eyes, composition. Interesting photo :)

the shadow on the neck from collar is a little distracting.

I'd like it better if the light source was from the bulb... 5

not such a bright idea

Great idea! Very original. I wish you had a little more expression in your face that made it really look like you had a bright idea, but besides that, excellent job!!

would have been better to have the light come from above so that the lightbulb would be more belevable
