Good question. I can not answer it, because I do not know the direction where your light is lighting. If it lights directly in the lens, you will seen the halogen bulb. Also the brightness of the image depends on the iris setting of your lens.

Thus, please check it on your own. You may use your desk lamp for this :-)
