Full Spectrum Style Transfer Art - Azalea flower clusters


The little flowers on this bush have made great macro photography scenes in the past. This time I got little wider macro shot of the clusters of flowers.

The unopened flowers were well colored but seems the open flowers through were not and stayed white which is interesting. You can see a couple in the picture but most of the closed flowers were colored well.


These photos are my posts for #trippythursday

Going back to my office I use a technique called neural style transfer to transform my infrared content images into stylized full spectrum photos. Though things do not always go as planned, as the imagenet seems to choose strange ways to stylize.

I find it cute, like some would find a toddler using a coloring book. The algorithm gets alot that we adult humans have learned. But other things we take for granted and machine learning has a long way to go in some cases.

I take pictures with a special camera. Its a Mirrorless DSLR that has been modified by Life Pixel to see light in other wavelengths. This allows my camera to see light in the Infrared [IR] around 1300 NM wavelength, through the visual spectrum and into the Ultraviolet A and B wavelengths roughly into the 300 NM wavelength.

I carry many filters on me to make the photos you see in my blog, these filters screw on my lens and help me isolate certain wavelengths for certain scenes. These filters can be IR / UV pass-through filters to assist me get a natural photo taking out the UV and IR light. Or I may use a Infrared pass-through filter capture just IR light. I can do the same with UV light as well, though I need some better filters which they can cost a few hundred dollars for true Ultraviolet pass through filters. So for right now I have B + W 403 bandpass filters that still allow some IR light in, due to their cheaper material.

There are also exotic glasses made of sapphire and germanium I am open to working with to replace my silica glass hot mirror with a material that allows even longer wavelengths of infrared to enter my cameras sensor. Special sensors, lenses and filters of that material would be needed as well, so it would be a big project but one that may give some even more unique photography results.

Addresses below to help me buy better camera equipment and support me to travel to locations to do photo and video and overall great blogs in new places. I would be happy to list some of the contributors in my posts for donations that help me along the way.

Wow... This is really lovely capture...I really find it interesting.. Thanks for sharing your post on #pypt ...


@priyanarc thanks I find it all pretty interesting too.

That's pretty cool! It's crazy that the opened flowers stayed white. I don't really understand your camera at all, but I love the results!


@goat-girlz actually my camera captured the flower correctly but my render did not.. I use a computer program to paint color into my infrared photos.. if you look at the full spectrum example it came out right. It's fun stuff playing with this app but gives weird results sometimes.
