on the road

By Diana
still trying to get my head around processing infra red shots

I duplicated the layer, destaurated, auto levels and multiplied (I think)

gained from the advice on my others, so thanks all round Smile

Good evening Diana, for me it has to be V1, great composition and processing, I like the stillness implied, even the car seems to be still.

I like this photo it is very striking and immediately grabbed my atentionas I was flicking through. I think V1 is definately best. I have uploaded a modification. Part of the problem with infrared can be the contrast and the dynamic range with all the white folliage. One way round it which to an extent replicated the "glow" of Kodak infrared film is to duplicate the layer and apply a Gaussian blur to it. In the mod I did I used a radius of 9.5 for the blur. Then reduce the opacity of the layer to between 30 and 40%. This reduces the contrast and gives the glow. Before doing that I put in an adjustment layer to alter the levels for the sky to try and make it a bit more dramatic.

I think that this is perhaps your most confident conversion, David's mod works a treat for this to, looking very like film stock IR

Watcha Diana,
infra red int my thing, well, all right, I'd try it with infrared film or a digital modified to pass infrared, but to simulate it, it's no different to simulated cyanotype, whatever. However, have you tried home - techniques - infrared? there are six articles on the subject there; also, Pete has this excellent article: Pinhole Magic, in it he refers to the diffuse glow filter and its use in infrared, might be helpful.
Ps, oh, fair old picSmile
