    still learning, i'd like to ask the pro's how close to b&w IR this is. i've been searching the internet and viewing all sorts of images and trying to figure out PS processes that closely resemble them. i know green foliage is crucial, so i chose this image to play with. i'm not sure how the human element should look but the grass looks close i think. thanks in advance for any tips you may have.

    hmmm..... It looks like a B&W to me, contrast played with some. Admittedly you have whitened out the grass, but the background foliage is still near black. It doesn't resemble a true IR.

    Buy some IR film! :mrgreen: Don't forget the red filter.

    Like the photo Jon, and I don't know much about getting a true IR result, but the cloest I've found was a technique in one of Scott Kelby's books, using a channel mixer layer, check monochrome and then use 160, 190, -200, and then move the constant to the left until it fits the shot.
