Nicely done.
That reminds me I should forget about my screaming kid for a minute and start having some fun with the the camera and the lights.

That's a cool shot, can I ask if you would share how you did this as I thought the element would have caused the shot to be way to bright normally?

Thanks everyone. The secret is a dimmer on the bulb so you can turn it down as low as it wil go. To get the bokeh, the bulb was pretty close to the camera and the lights about 4 times that distance further back. Canon Lady, the secret is to wait until after their bedtime :)

Good image, I watch all Gavin's videos I'll have a go at this over Christmas as it looks like I'll be indoors most of the time with the weather being so bad.
