Rudbeckia and the UV LED

I'm still mumbling around about making use of UV-LEDs for Uv photography.

So this time the target was a nice Rudbeckia flower which is known to sport some otherwise invible sharp UV pattern. The macro lens used was a calibrated 130mm lens.

As light source a 375nm UV LED was used here and no other modifications were done, not even a filter was used.

The second shot I used a filtered 365nm UV LED, also no lens filter and the colors were somewhat adjusted to taste.

So I would say, that there is quite some potential in these UV sources and thus will be studied further.

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