Infrared Lake by electricjonny Infrared Lake by electricjonny
This is a sort of old IR shot I did. I didn't like the original colors, but the ever so talented ^Davenit had an IR shot which he switched the red and blue channels, and that works pretty well for mine. The sky was a redish color and the shot had a red color cast to it. I made that into an action since I will be using that a lot with my IR stuff :D

Canon PowerShot S2 IS with a 72nm infrared filter.

Photoshop to get rid of some noise, switch the red and blue channels, sharpen it a bit and mess with the curves.

Thanks :) I just used an infrared filter, then held it in front of my point & shoot camera, then shot a longish exposure.

Hehe thanks :)

I think a big part of that was switching the red and blue channels in Photoshop. That just made things look more natural, although it added some strangeness to it too.

Anyway, thanks for the comment :)

Haha, well the main thing to have is an infrared filter, but you sort of need to know if your camera is sensitive to infrared light.

I always thought that IR photos just looked all red and yellow and blue, you know? All weird-like. You know? Anyways, I am pleased to have been proven wrong :D

Pretty, but it feels off. Like the angle isn't in quite the right place...either too high or too low. But that's just me ;p

Ah yes, I see what you mean. This was one of the last ones on my memory card, I should really learn to think about the shots before I take them =P

You'll never find the right angle if you just keep using the same ones. Experimentation is key. :shrug:

I have a fascination for IR photography that I discovered on DA (as well as pixel art) and I would love to experiment it, especially when you know how special, surreal and elfic human skin gets under IR exposure...
