Hi All,
 
I’ve recently been asked to do some UV photography of a collection of works on paper- I’m hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on very basic UV photography.
 
Up until now our conservation department have been doing their own UV photography with some UV tubes and a point and shoot camera with no added filtration in a far from ideal studio environment. The results have been ok for them as working resource but I’m quite keen to improve the quality of the images :)  
 
I’d be using the same UV tubes but in a more controlled environment.
 
In the past for a previous job (if I remember rightly) I used a 2e filter on the front of the camera and some UV tubes. Does this seem like a reasonable way to proceed?

Should I be using a 18A or equivalent filter as well?

One website I’ve been looking at recommends a 2e and a PECA 918 filter- would this be better?

Would it be best to use a Phaseone with a CCD IQ180 back or (because of the low light and long exposures) a Nikon D810?
 
Previously the conservation department I worked with wanted the colour temperature set on tungsten because they found it easier to see how the different surfaces were fluorescing- is this common practise?
 
Does anyone have any experience of using a target similar to this and is it worth the expense?

Many thanks,
