My UV shots on BBC's "Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds" Episode 2

These are my still images BBC had chosen for their production of episode 2 of "Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds". These are some of my earliest works which must have impressed them the most. Here again for your viewing pleasure ....

Sanvitalia ("Creeping Zinnia") in VIS + UV:

Rudbeckia ("Black eyed Susan") in VIS + UV:

Petunia in VIS + UV:

Potentilla recta ("Sulfur ´Cinquefoil") in VIS + UV:

Well, of course I feel honored that they gave me a chance to show my work, thus allowing the viewers of that series to understand, that there is so much more (beauty) beyond our very limited visual range!

Further on the technical side to contribute to the HDTV filming by finding suitable UV sensitive HDTV-cameras and suitable light sources, plus later then using my special lenses + filters for the actual filming of the scenes. That was all a great challenge but big fun working with such a professional team!

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
