Daily photo – Different infrared
Today I would like to share another infrared image I took back in 2013 on the island of Crete. This one is a bit different on the processing side. Normally what most IR-photographers do is to swap red & blue channels of the infrared photo to achieve blue sky in the output image. This time, however, I decided not to swap those two channels because I found the image quite interesting.
If you’re interested in infrared photography, I have something for you. I wrote several tutorials about it and shared them on my blog:
- Introduction to infrared photography – will introduce you to the world of infrared photograhy. In this part I talk about equipment needed to get started with infrared photography and I also give some tips on taking infrared photos,
- Post-processing infrared photos – in this part I focus on the post-processing of IR photos to get them this very typical look with blue skies and white foliage.
- Simulating infrared photography in Photoshop – if you don’t have tools necessary to create real infrared photos, there is an easy trick how to create fake IR photo directly in Photoshop.
