local canal and first time out with infra red filter

unfortunatly a tripod is a must due to the amount of light that it blocks out, also there is quite a lot of post processing to do

anyway i saw some shots in IR and thought they looked good so figured id give it a whirl

Looking at your shot Iunderstand that IR is the way to go so as to explore a magical world!!

Btw,your tasteful composition does not go unnoticed

Wow, they're superb. I really like the effects of using IR filters, but mine haven't come out anywhere near as good as these.

What sort of processing did you do?

hi mate

thanks for comment, firstly its an ir72 filter there is another kind what doesnt work as well, so if urs is ir72 we are on the right track



In Photoshop go to Image>Adjustments>Channel mixer you will first see the setting to the red channel. The red is on 100 and the green and blue are on 0. Turn the red to 0 and the blue to 100.
Now go to the blue channel (the top dropdown menu in the message box). Turn the red to 100 and the blue to 0.
The channels have switched and if you want a better balance change the settings a bit.

If the ‘Whites' are a bit ‘Reddish', you can go to Image>adjustments>Hue/saturation and lower the saturation of the red (and yellow) channel.


then its just a case of doing any other fiddling till ur happy with results

Gary
