Plant UV_18

Unlike the IR and visible range, normal camera sensors aren’t super sensitive to ultraviolet light. Additionally, glass blocks (most) UV, so you need a special lens to gather the light and focus it on the sensor. This results in a situation where you are always shooting at a higher ISO and smaller aperture than you would select for more standard photography, as well as working with a much smaller colour palette.

So, in a lot of cases, if you don’t have a dedicated UV studio (which I do not), you wind up with a grainy, tinted monochrome look.

I think it works though.
