Tried my hand at an ultraviolet self-portrait under the Australian sun

35mm, f/3.5, 1/30th, ISO12800.

Full spectrum-converted Canon 5Dmk2 (Spectosil 2000 Fused Silica) + Auto Takumar 35mm F3.5 + BG40 + UG11.

Many thanks to OlDoinyo for suggesting the Asahi 35mm f3.5 !

I have a EL-Nikkor 135mm f/5.6 on the way with appropriate extension tubes, helicoid, and adapters. Hopefully I'll be posting results of this lens in the future!

That is a nice and definitively 'UV' portrait :D

Oh, it looks like now the famous Australian ozone hole stays open in winter as well. :)

Fine picture! Seems to show little noise.

That is respectably sharp for having been shot at maximum aperture (I usually chicken out and set mine to f/16.) You could make yourself an avatar out of that image.

Cool portrait !!!

I'm afraid to see what I look like in UV.
