Just wondering if anyone knows anythign about UV photography and how to light it ? I may just help out an MUA whose looking for a photographer to do such a shoot as a last resort. I'm googling for info but nothing so far thats made me work out how it's done.

Cheers

Harj

Hi G

I wish it was IR , but its definitely UV photography, so thanks for the links. I've nto received any further info from the mua or test imags but I think shes wants to be able to take something like this:



I've no idea if the Oly's can do this, but according to that link you posted if the Nikons can do it then I'm hoping the Olys can too. What I need to work out is how its done? I think if i can get UV lights which I may just try and do test for fun. This may just be way too hard to do so.

You mean blacklight photography.

Actually I have been reading up on this, but everything I've read so far has been done via a Google search, so I can't be of much help there.

As well the stuff I want to do is mixed blacklight with flash for some natural light...and it would be of flowers, so no MUA need apply.

Hi Harj,

I know nothing about IR/UV photography but you're post intrigued me to look. Here's a site that offers an introduction into the world of Ulra Violet photography.

seems that way, lol.overlooked your very fantastic & informative post. how can i make it up to you? :blah:

looks like it might be as easy as using a uv filter/black light/fluorescent paint + long exposures.
