It’s been a while since I did a UV photoshoot. I recently teamed up with Meghan of Meg’s War Paint, who has collaborated with me on blacklight photography projects before. I set up the UV Cannon and 4 fluorescent tubes for the shoot.
Model: Ruby Astell
Thanks also to Claire Karura for assisting during the shoot!
Here’s my first black light cinemagraph as well!
Check out some of my other black light photoshoots:

Cinemagraphs are a combination of video and still photography, usually more of a photograph with some motion. The term cinemagraph was coined by Jamie Beck and Kevin Berg. Cinemagraphs are actually animated gifs, which have been around for a long time, but they have a cinematic quality and retain the feel of a photograph.
A photographer friend of mine, Jenny Chen, was visting Vancouver so we decided to collaborate on a photoshoot and use the opportunity to try to create some cinemagraphs. It was the first time either of us had tried this. I followed an excellent video tutorial, which demonstrates how to create cinemagraphs using Photoshop CS5 Extended.
Here are 4 cinemagraphs from that shoot:
Models: Taryn Emelia and Marina F Mendes
Makeup: Megs War Paint
