Just curious.
Dec 11, 2013

Did any of you ever experiment with black light, years ago I dabbled with it, found it remarkable the variety of every day objects would take on different colours, I used a large black painted carton with a hole for the lens, I cannot remember how long the exposures were, I sure had fun.

This was probably taken with a Minolta X500, pity there is no exif.

Well John first you have to buy the uv lamp, You keep all ambiant light out, which means long exposures, you might be surprised how many everyday thing floress, baking soda salt etc try anything, can't help any more, it was along time ago. I also used  to fire an air gun into old light bulbs, to trigger the flash I made a switch, just two pieces of silver paper wired to the flash, the air gun slug going through it fired the flash, the trick was to determine the distance from the trigger to the bulb, the gun was firmly gripped in a vice but here again you are working in the dark for best results, I don't think i could do it with a digital camera.
