UV Photography

Reflected UV Photography - UV Remapping / Differentials

This gallery is intended to hold examples of what may be achieved using ultraviolet light (300...400nm range). >>> explains it in detail!! <<<
A "normal" white light image is sometimes provided for comparison. UV images are often combined with the white light images
(UV remapping, showing UV as blue/violet) to show the difference of the UV vision, but there is also UV fluorescence and IR remapping etc. shown.

Cameras : Nikon D70, D200; Epson R-D1; Olympus E-510
Lenses : Nikon UV Nikkor 105mm, Coastal Optics Ultra Micro Apo 105mm, Pentax Ultra Achromatic Takumar 85mm + 300mm,
Rodenstock UV Rodagon 60mm, Zeiss UV Planar 60mm and some older, UV calibrated normal & wide angle lenses like my X135, X50, X35 and X28
lenses plus some own developments and oddities ...
Filters : Baader U-Filter called UG11xx(2"), UG11x (1 1/4"); Schott UG1, UG11 + BG40 plus others
Lightsources: The best UV source - Sun, Nikon SB-140 and modified SB-14 flash, Mercury, and Xenon lamps, UV LED lamps
