My first none practice infrared :mrgreen:
that looks amazing. I wish I could do that..
That looks really great!
Thanks guys It was perfect weather this morning for IR. Bright and still
How do you do IR ? Is that film or digital. Its amazing!
Thanks ZD This was taken on my Nikon D50 (DSLR) with the kit lens.
To do this i did the following....
-Set up camera and composition - i start at 8secs @F/5.6 and work from that
Some people like to manually set the WB first by shooting a brightly lit patch of grass, but i adjust in Lightroom
-Either manual focus or Auto focus before you put on the IR filter (but make sure you switch to manual after putting your filter on as they a virtually black)
- Put your filter on - I use a Hoya R72
- Shoot - your image will com out red
For PP i take the image into lightroom:
-Set the custom WB by clicking on a grassy/leafy patch of the pic
- Take over to photoshop and adjust the tone - i use auto tone
- Select Layer>new adjustment layer>channel mixer
- in the red channel make these adjustments: Red:0 Green:0 Blue:+100
-in the blue channel make these adjustments: Red:+100 Green:0 Blue:0
if there is any red left in the pic got to your hue and saturation options and desaturate the red and magenta.
Thank you so much!! I added this to my favorites./
Thanks and No probs Im sure there are other ways of doing it, this is just the way that suits yours truley, best
