Embrace of Color by Doomsday-Dawn Embrace of Color by Doomsday-Dawn
Shot at the May 31st 2009 "Back in Blacklight" workshop hosted by D.M. Gremlin Studios.

Post Production: Adjusted highlights equivalent to a full exposure stop, and midtones roughly half stop. Shifted black point to eliminate exposure noise.
This was shot on a Cannon I borrowed from ^wynnesome for the day, and while I love my Nikon, the Cannon color interpretation software tends to shoot UV colors in more accurate shades.

Model: Emobi
Blacklight Paints: ^Battledress

So beautiful and crystal clear. One of the very finest blacklights I've seen!

Reminds me of a picaso (or something I'm not the best art student) Again, amazing shot!

Rock on, amigo! Ditto on the contacts. Short of painting a model's eyelids a la Johnny Depp/Capt Jack Sparrow, what else can you do?

I've had similar experiences with Canon. I notice they're better with blues where Nikon by default hits the red & yellow tones more. You can change color balance, but you can't change the sensor & software. That's why I prefer Nikon in general, though that 21 MP EOS 5D Mark II has me drooling and contemplating a switch. I'm at a low point with a mostly-broken D70 and only two unbroken lenses, so if I'm ever going to change now's the time.

Kudos for once again setting the bar.

Heh, we thought about doing that. Might still happen at some point.

While I'm sure it varies model to model, my experiences with Nikon has always been accurate color interpretation in white light. Not that it's a massive difference, and one can always shift it in post if so desired. Just part of the philosophy of getting it right with a shutter click, and spending less time pushing a mouse.

She has the appearance of some warped kind of doll ready to come to life and stalk some unwary victim.

There are shots from this paint series where you literally can't find her against the background. . . except for the glowing eyes.
