UV Pinhole Photography

UV Image (Pinhole) Visible Light (120 mm lens)

Pinhole photography using the UV spectral band is quite simple. Just add a UV bandpass filter to your ordinary pinhole camera and that's about it. The examples above were captured on Fuji RTP film using a Hoya U-360 filter for the UV image, and a 85B filter for the visible image (to convert the tungsten film to give daylight rendition). Note that UV pinhole images are quite sharp, this results because of the short wavelengths of the image-forming rays compared to visible-light pinhole photography.

UV images may also be acquired using digital techniques. For an updated review of digital UV and IR photography, click here.
