Eat Your Heart Out, "Ray Flash"

For a moment, light is taking a back seat to creativity. Strobist reader Cohophoto whipped this DIY Steampunk Ray Gun up out of parts from old radios and cameras.

The closer you look at this thing, the better it looks, too. It's just so off-the-scale cool, I don't care how he lit it.

But you can see the lighting setup shot (and a link to the set of assembly photos) inside.

In the end, he used HDR and some heavy burning along with the lighting. But again, I frankly do not care. This thing is just too flippin' sweet not to run.

I want one.

(The full set of photos is on Flickr, here.)
