Glowing filament

Tonight I wired a soldering iron in series with the flash capacitor and light bulb .
Now I have a more subtle glow that I can control easier when I do my next set of 'breaking light bulbs' shots .

If I work at iso 200 and F16 this is the glow I will get .

17 July 2010 .
I bought some cheap light bulbs but unfortunately they only had frosted bulbs . I managed one ok shot with the one clear bulb I had .

and a few of the frosted bulbs ....
