Beyond Human Perception

Challenge #4 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Most of the photos people take use the camera to capture what people see; the challenge is to capture things that a person normally would NOT be able to see. The subject might be unseen because it is imaged in NIR (near infrared), happens too quickly (use a fast shutter or flash) or too slowly (use a long exposure or time lapse stacking) for human perception, is seen from a place your camera can go but you can't, etc.

Sometimes a flake will catch the light beautifully, but the slightest change of angle can make it disappear. This was a lucky shot made with a film camera with extension tubes + bellows, and a short lens for max magnification. A single flash was used above the snowflake.
