Full Spectrum Long Exposure Ultraviolet Fluorescence Photography #9: Akebia flowers Part 1

in photography •  last month 

The flowers are purple in visual light and have a mild fragrance to them. The bees like them and if there were couple plants it would produce fruit from these flowers. I took a cutting of the flowers and used my blacklight to get an interesting look at the flowers.

One of the flowers has not opened completely yet. It has stamens but have not uncurled from the looks of it.

Looks like nectar or pollen on the ends of the stamens, those long parts of the flower in the center.

The little flower is open and you can see the stamens inside of the structure of the flower.

I took this picture of the flower while still attached to the plant in visual light.

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.

Addresses below to help me buy better camera equipment and support me to travel to locations to do photo and video and overall great blogs in new places. I would be happy to list some of the contributors in my posts for donations that help me along the way.
