My first steps in IR photography

Gil Cavalcanti on July 12, 2007

How to. I got this procedure from the web, but it wasn't easy to find, so if you clicked on this picture, maybe you want to know how it came to being.

What I did was to mount the camera in a tripod and then I took two pictures. The first was just a normal one and for the second I attached an infrared filter and took a long exposure picture (over 60s). I made sure I didn't move the camera between one shot and the other, so the two pictures align perfectly when superposed.

Once I had the two digital pictures, I opened them in photoshop and copied the red channel from the IR picture onto the red channel of the normal picture. The effect was that the original normal photo became much redder. Then I used levels to tone down the redness.
