Ultraviolet and Infrared Photography - Muscadine vines growing on trellis

in #photographylast year

I find these plants all over the woods, usually trying to grow up into the trees to get better light. And when they succeed they usually produce fruit. A grape like fruit with alot of little seeds inside. Tasty if you can deal with the seeds.

These spade like leaves grow quite quickly. And the vine is vigorous as well throwing out roots anywhere it touches ground.

These native Georgia plants seem to do very well here, and if left in full sun will explode in growth.

Not sure when the fruit will come, but may be a few years for the plant to mature.

In the mean time its throwing off alot of leaves and vines everywhere.

Something munched on the leaves a little bit seeing if its tasty.

I take pictures with a special camera. Its a Mirrorless DSLR that has been modified by Life Pixel to see light in other wavelengths. This allows my camera to see light in the Infrared [IR] around 1300 NM wavelength, through the visual spectrum and into the Ultraviolet A and B wavelengths roughly into the 300 NM wavelength.

I carry many filters on me to make the photos you see in my blog, these filters screw on my lens and help me isolate certain wavelengths for certain scenes. These filters can be IR / UV pass-through filters to assist me get a natural photo taking out the UV and IR light. Or I may use a Infrared pass-through filter capture just IR light. I can do the same with UV light as well, though I need some better filters which they can cost a few hundred dollars for true Ultraviolet pass through filters. So for right now I have B + W 403 bandpass filters that still allow some IR light in, due to their cheaper material.

There are also exotic glasses made of sapphire and germanium I am open to working with to replace my silica glass hot mirror with a material that allows even longer wavelengths of infrared to enter my cameras sensor. Special sensors, lenses and filters of that material would be needed as well, so it would be a big project but one that may give some even more unique photography results.
