Need help or tips on some product photography. Sometimes prospects want to see what a lighting fixture looks like when it is illuminated. I can't figure out how to take a picture that looks decent when the light (LED with RGB) is turned on. With a long exposure the RGB LED light just turns white. A short exposure and you get the nice LED RGB colors but can't see the fixture details in the cutaway model. Is there another way of doing this that doesn't require a lot of Photoshop work? Photo on top is with light turned off so that you can see the internal parts. Bottom half of the photo is with the LED running to get the RGB light effect. Last one with both merged together in Photoshop and some extra treatment.

Hi Telephoto500, that is kind of what I tried to do. It is really hard to stare into bright lights from six feet away and try to change camera settings you can really start to get a headache. Love to stare into light bulbs.. ;)
