1st IR photos – what a disaster!

Thought I’d try my hand at IR today. It didnt go so well. I got some good tips and comments from my friends on twitter though so its all a learning curve!

Heres my 1st stab at editing:

After speaking with some people (@ Scott_Wood, @ gallarotti, @IlanBr) on twitter I followed this tutorial

Heres the re-edited version:

The trees arnt white (as you see in many IR photos) because I didnt know I had to manual white balance on grass first! I shall try that next time.

You can find other attempts here: http://www.pbase.com/suzy_walker/ir

As you see its very mark looking. To see what a lovely sunny day it was (and the sorts of colours I should have been shooting with HDR instead of IR) check out Mikes photos from the same walk!

  1. The final result look pretty nice, but not 100% IR shot. If I remember correctly, there is some manual WB changes to be made before shooting IR.
    And I’m not sure, but I think there was some kind of problem with Cannon cameras and IR.. :\
