Lukas, tell how you achieved this effect?

Lukas Novak on July 30, 2009

Hello A_Radeev. In general, the process is like this: take an infrared picture with a digital camera. As there are no colors in the IR spectrum that we can perceive, the data stored in RGB channels are color-fake. Knowing that the picture will never have "true colors" anyway, why not to look in to those channels and experiment? And that's what I did. I used a channel mixer and a Hue/Saturation tool to post-process the image. I suppressed some of the fake colors and I fine-tuned (hue-adjusted) other colors into the final look. Nothing added to the shot for I believe it would be cheating. I also believe that photography should remain within the data that came out of the camera.
