That'* really awesome!

At first I wasn't sure what it was for, and assumed it was some device for growing weed... . I like the photography idea better

Thats pretty cool. Can the bulb get hot enough to ignite the covering? That would be my only concern.

I like the pics too. Very detailed

They are 23watt fluorescent bulbs, so I am not really worried about them catching the twin bed sheet on fire. I mean I was touching them after long periods of use. If they were halogen I would be a little more concerned.

Thanks on the pics. I think they came out alright but are FAR from good. To get them like above it took a good bit of post processing. Which obviously is not something ideal for picture taking. Future experimentation will tell how I like it....
