What a dramatic sky!!! LIKE (very much)
Love it! Are you shooting the IR in monochrome or desaturating in PhotoShop? Or, is this deep IR (930nm)?
Very beautiful photo!
Best regards Stig

Hi smoobooty, sorry it has taken so long for me to answer your question. My IR camera has a 720 IR filter in it. I bring the red/magenta photos into Photoshop and adjust the RGB channels for maximum effect, not converting to BW. Then I typically pull the pic into Silver Efex Pro 2 which desaturates and gives me more options for adjustments. I have noted that Silver Efex Pro tends to create noise, however. I use their point controls to de-emphasize structure in specific areas like the sky and clouds, where noise is more obvious. Then I go into Photoshop again and do more if necessary. For some IR shots, I desaturate in PS and don't use Efex. Sometimes I also desaturate a standard color pic in PS and more rarely in Efex.
This pic was channel adjusted in PS then desaturated in Silver Efex. Then once more in PS I did curves, dodging, burning, blurring, and cropping, maybe some perspective adjustment. A person can spend a lot of time in PS picking at little things, but that is probably all I did to it.
Thanks Karen Yes, it is way to easy to spend way too much time in post production but equally frustrating when you get one like that doesn't want to be changed. The D70 doesn't do monochrome so everthing is about white balance and exposure. I get some really odd stuff that is well suited for the trash bin. I may go shoot IR tomorrow but I have several boxes of returns to review. There are also a couple of wild Dogwood trees I need to shoot as well...one, a white puff-ball surrounded by pines on one side and the railroad tracks on the other. Will be an interesting IR experiment and a challenge in color as well.
bestens in Szene gesetzt und bearbeitet
