Kim and the Black Light

Last month I stumbled upon some UV/black light portraits and wanted to give it a try. I knew Kim wanted some images for her portfolio, so I asked if she'd like to collaborate on some black light tests and she readily agreed.


I bought a couple of black light CFL bulbs and some UV fluorescent makeup from Amazon for the shoot. As Kim could only shoot during the day, I had to black out the windows in my studio to limit the amount of ambient light in the studio. Fun times!


strobist: 1 Canon 580EX, camera left (behind subject), gridded, pointed at the black, collapsible background. The main light (camera right) was provided by 2 black light CFL bulbs housed in floor lamp.
