Thanks Jason, John and Warl0rd!
Here's a little more detail: I broke the bulbs first by placing them in a paper bag and tapping them with a hammer and used a pair of pliers to clean up the remaining glass. Had the light fixture in a dark room and flipped the switch on to the light and pressed the shutter at the same time.
Thanks for the details, Monty. I was guessing that might be how you did it. Still getting the image you did took great timing and prep. I think it's SMWYG worthy!
BTW, I didn't realize the Macro DSLR challenge was now a year old. Thanks again for starting this up John. It was a great idea, and like Monty, I love seeing how folks interpret the various themes. I know it's helped me develop my macro skills too!
Warl0rd, thanks for the details on your shot as well. I need to try that fast a shutter on a bulb shot. In fact, you gave me an idea of something to do!
