Flower in UV

Here is the latest from my home studio in Bozeman, Montana with my continued experiments with Ultraviolet Induced Visible Fluorescence (UVIVF) photography.

For this image, I floated an aster flower in a fish tank, and in complete darkness I shined some UV lights on my subject while carefully placing drops of different colored neon acrylic artist ink throughout.

The painterly look I achieved was all done in-camera using my Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera and M.Zuiko 12-100mm f4 Pro lens while using the Live Comp feature. As the acrylic ink slowly sank, the camera recorded this new light while not overexposing the rest of the image allowing me to easily control this long exposure.
