Ultraviolet and Infrared Photography - Portraits by Cool Springs Overlook

in portraitphotography •  6 months ago 

While visiting the views at Fort Mountain State Park I take a few selfies using my screw on filters on my full spectrum camera. The first two photos and UV and IR, and then the last two photos are just IR. Doing a selfie with a DSLR is kind of hard, luckily my camera is a Micro Four Thirds system so its a little smaller than most.

These photos are my posts for #portraitphotography

My face is a washed out with the sun in the background, though I wanted to capture the landscape so I guess I had to choose that or no mountain view.

Peering over in view though it came out a little unfocused.

Lastly an infrared photo with the pickets of the deck in view. Casting a shadow across the planks on the structures base.

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.
