Black Light Photography

Black Light Photography: Red Rose

Unfortunately, today’s shots wasn’t a pleasant experience. The first set of plants (not sure what they were called, but they looked like large tulips), I realized within the first hour I was allergic to them. I had to rap up those bad boys in a garbage bag. 🙁 . Second was some mixed red and white roses. I decided to purchase an inexpensive black light for effects (it wasn’t a real black light I remembered growing up with, but it was good enough for what I wanted to do). The shots were kind of difficult, because it wasn’t a very powerful black light, so there wasn’t a whole lot of wiggle option; but I finally got the shot I liked. I tried doing something different by using a can of gold paint, but the odor was just way too strong for me to handle, so I had to pack everything up. So unfortunately, no gold photos today. In the future, I will try to have a better game plan. Mean while, enjoy The one shot I did like!
