Full Spectrum Style Transfer Art - Flowering tree canopy

By Solominer | Solominer | 1 Aug 2019


I like taking pictures of tree canopies, it gives an unique perspective of the tree and with the light shining through the leaves it can add a great look to the image. I took an infrared image, noting the black sky. And then took off the filter, adjusted my white balance and took another without any filter giving me a full spectrum image.

 

The result of the neural network rendering the image is like glasswork on a church window. It has that cathedral glass look to it mixed with fractals. I find it interesting seeing fractals in computer vision is similar to what we see under the influence of some substances.

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.

I am a user of cryptocurrency and also run infrastructure for multiple Coins and Dapps. I write about my experience with blockchain tech and nature. On the side I use a full spectrum camera to take unique photos in the Infrared and Ultraviolet spectrums.
