Most living things have a little natural fluorescence, some more than others.



Man-made objects can glow too, depending on the chemicals within them.

Like magic!

The UV lighting arm combines a UV LED and a UV Band Pass Filter to block the visible spectrum. It only allows invisible pure UV light to reach the subject.


This is UV Lighting designed to get true UV fluorescence photography results, without the light contamination of normal UV light sources like flashlights and blacklight bulbs.


The UV light is absorbed by the subject and re-emitted as visible light, allowing us to see the subject “glow”. This is Ultraviolet Induced Visible Fluorescence (UVIVF)


Remove all other light from the environment to enhance the effect. The light created by the subject will be the only source of light. We can capture the visible light using a long exposure.

This opal creates its own visible light when supplied with pure UV.
