All You Ever Wanted to Know About Digital UV and IR Photography, But Could Not Afford to Ask

13. Final Cut

I can end this article in no better way than wetting the reader's appetite with samples of images taken with digital UV/IR methods. Some of the images displayed below could easily have been obtained with film-based cameras as well, while others would be virtually impossible to capture within the constraints of film. For me, the final result is far more important than the means to that end. I hope future photographers partaking on the digital UV/IR scene will enjoy this kind of photographic expressions as much as I do.

A dedicated web site exhibiting my UV and IR pictorial photography can be found here. Be warned these portfolio images are large and might impact your bandwidth and question your apprehension of nature photography (note: You should run 1280 x 1024 or higher monitor resolution in order to see the portfolio images properly).
