This may or may not be the globe that I had in elementary school. And I may or may not be old enough to own a globe with the Soviet Union on it.
Moving right along. I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile. To get the shot, I just draped some black fabric over the couch, put the globe on the floor, and stuck a bare light bulb between the two. I had to do a really long exposure to get the effect I wanted (I used f/22 for 25 seconds). With an exposure that long, I had to use the remote (or I could have used the self-timer). I was initially going to use my tripod, but in the end I decided that a stack of books on the floor would work just as well. 🙂
