Glow

Light in the dark is simply magical. One of Amata’s first cave photography projects was to capture phosphorescence of formations. It is not the easiest thing to capture, as instead of a UV light actively exposing the image, phosphorescence is when light is emitted after exposure to, in this case, a flash.

With entomology work, she became interested in what may fluoresce, after all UV light may make some species ‘pop’ from the background, making these tiny things easier to spot. And as always, “glow worms” and others who create their own light are amazing to photograph.
