I belong to a FB Group that shares have information on how to make different types of photos. The color in side a Light Bulb was the latest and hear is my attempt at capturing colors inside the bulb
For those interested here is how it is done
Download an interesting graphical image from the Internet. Just Google free abstract images or wallpaper. Or use one of your own.
Open it on your iPad and enlarge it to full screen.
Place a clear light bulb on the iPad. I bought mine at Home Depot for $6.99
Place a black background right behind the iPad
Use a tripod and lens on your camera that allows for a close up shot. I used a 24-85
Use manual focus and a low shutter speed. I used 1/15
Focus the light bulb and then Turn off all the lights in the room and start shooting
I moved the light bulb around taking shots from different angles
