    Yep, I'm bored! Same setup as the egg (more or less).

    Cool! I like the 2nd one better, softer lighting and those orbs are just so cool looking in that one :)

    Way to keep at it! I do not like the specular highlights in the first frame. The second shot is much stronger.

    Yeah, I forgot to widen the beam on the flashlight, so it blew out the highlights.

    I'm gonna work on a stand that's a bit more permanent using a piece of ABS pipe that uses a lightbulb instead of the flashlight.

    Add a rheostat to control the light level and vary the size of the hole and I should be able to get just what I want. I hope.

    Flashlight shining up through a hole in a box that the jar is sitting in. Basically, that's it. I used the bathroom, as that's the only room in the house with no windows in it.

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :)

    Your rheostat idea sounds brilliant. keep in mind that you should have a powerful bulb. As far as color temp goes, I think tungsten is easier to deal with than florescent. Experiment with screens and diffusion over the light source. I do not have to say "never forget the trusty bounce".
