How to change a light bulb?

How do I get access in order to change this light bulb? This is located in a shower stall. I tried turning the glass covering to the left but that doesn't seem to do anything. And if I try to rotate the outer white part to the left if feels like I'm going to break it.

Best answer: Instead of rotating the white part, get your fingernails under the edge and pull straight down.

Best answer: Yep, I have the same type of light in my hall way. You pull down. It's ridiculous, but it's true.

Best answer: And it will make a horrible screeching noise as the metal clips that hold it up are pulled against the metal can. It will feel like it doesn't want to budge, but it will move.

Yep, just pull down.
