Inspiration #24

Blacklight Portrait Photo Shoot can be a fun to catch colorful body art paint under ultra voilet light, the magic of glowing makeup makes eye-catching effects under these lights. It is a great challenge to remove the visible light to create an UV radiation in the images, the popping Photographs under black background with bright color painted bodies are septacular. ultraviolet lights aren’t just the preserve of school discos and weekend raves: they can also be used to create glow-in-the-dark portraits. You don’t need to add any special filters to the lens to enhance the effect, although you will need to increase the ISO, as the output from these lights is very low.

Manually set a sensitivity of ISO 1,600 to start with, then take a range of test exposures, reviewing the results on the rear screen and making adjustments as necessary. It’s likely that you’ll still be working at slow shutter speeds, so use a tripod and ask your model to find a pose that they can hold still.

You’ll need to experiment with the choice of clothing for your model. Different materials react differently under UV light, but white man-made fibres are a good starting point.

For an added splash of colour, try using neon paint that will glow under a blacklight. Make sure that it’s the non-toxic, water-based variety, and ask your model to apply a small bit first to ensure their skin doesn’t have an adverse reaction.
