Hello

I have one idea in mind and I am not sure how or is it even possible.

Most of people have seen pictures where people have used UV paint and then they get some quit interesting pictures.

Like this one what I found by google:

LINK:

 

What I like to to is use this type of paint and get similar results underwater.

I think that I am lost between flourescent and UV pictures.

Or if I use flourescent lights and filters should I get similar result like using blacklight on land?

 

Thanks

Painting things underwater is not trivial, and what would you want to paint.  I think it might be fun to paint a background that you could take underwater to put around a coral or something else that fluoresced naturally though, that might be cool.

I like to make some face and body paint on land, not underwater, and then shoot them underwater, so that face or body clowing like some corals when use flourescent.

That would work fine. You will need a filter for the strobe and one for the camera but it might be very cool.

Please don't take soluble paints underwater, in the ocean.
