This week's Platypod Perspectives episode features Rain Hayes (Platypod Pro) and her exquisite UVIVF captures. The results are going to have you running to the nearest bathroom (to remove light spillage) and testing her easy to follow techniques. Rain's pro tip for you is that, you can still get a similar style image with a little light spillage however, you'll sacrifice the vibrant glow that she's captured in our feature image. The darkest you can make the room, the better off your final captures will be.

You're going to want to jump on over to YouTube now to take some notes and gear up to try these out for yourself!
