    Not that big a deal, just using blacklight to backlight uv reactive bubbles.
    First results. UV reactive bubbles with flash and blacklight (underpowered AA battery blacklight)

    Soon I plan on a different backdrop and a real 110 volt 24 inch tube blacklight for better illumination. Anyway - if someone could give me a rundown on creating a pure black background in PP I'd appreciate it.

    Any experiences, tips or information to improve upon this is appreciated.

    Cool but ultimately pointless IMO

    This is what I ordered

    http://www.amazon.com/Tekno-Bubbles...ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1225000515&sr=8-1

    and

    http://www.amazon.com/BL6-Portable-...pd_sim_dbs_misc?ie=UTF8&qid=1225000515&sr=8-1

    Which is underpowered IMO. I also had to cut the springs in half that are on the inside of the battery door - as they are WAY too large and the door would not shut properly with batteries installed (and when it DID shut, they were so long they bent and did not make contact with the batteries at all)

    All in all, it was 12 bucks total plus shipping from amazon.

    Bought a bigger black light :o and now after this, I'm pretty much done with bubbles. Maybe some food coloring in them if I'm bored one night, or the weather is bad. Finally perfected my lighting and my technique.

    I do NOT suggest you hold the bubble wand in front of a fan. UV reactive bubble juice gets on EVERYTHING.

    anyways
