Last month my post was on UVIVF photography, I posted a few photos taken of flowers under a UV light source to highlight the fluorescence absorbed from a highlighter cartridge placed in their water.
Due to the short bandwidth and strength of my UV lights, I’ve found that multiple exposures using light painting technics offers a great solution for enhancing more of the subject and surrounding background. Below are a flower bouquet and a couple of lily shots using this technique.
Having gone through most of the winter without picking up a camera, I decided it was time again and chose a nice, simple and fun project to start with, Ultra Violet Induced Visual Fluorescence or UVIVF Photography.
Hoping others will give this a try, as it is very affordable and can be done with any basic photography setup.
Plus, it’s just fun to see the fluorescence even if not photographing. Image above shows the green luminance of the water in the vase and UV rays reflected from the bathroom mirror.
