Full Spectrum Style Transfer Art - Akebia flowers and leaves

in trippythursday •  3 months ago 

The Akebia plant produces scented flowers, they have a unique shape. In full spectrum light the leaves have a purple hue to them. I have shared photos from the ultraviolet florescence series. Though this time I use GPU rendering along with conventional neural network also known as a CNN, to create an interpretation of the two images merging together.


These photos are my posts for #trippythursday

Camera ModelLumix GH3, modified by LifePixel for Full Spectrum
LensOlympus MSC ED M. 60mm Macro lens
Shutter Speed1/1300 sec
Film Speed200
SpectrumFull Spectrum (FS)
Wavelength300 nanometers through 1200 nanometers
LocationNorth Georgia USA.


Going back to my office I use a technique called neural style transfer to transform my infrared content images into stylized full spectrum photos. Though things do not always go as planned, as the imagenet seems to choose strange ways to stylize.

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.

Attractive look :-)

@manorvillemike sure is, thanks alot.

The full spectrum one looks cool!!

@blacklux yeah it has a purple hue to it, not sure why as they are usually green in visual light or white in infrared.
