Some infrared shenanigans - R720 and E-M5
11 months ago

Just a few snapshots with the R720 filter.

Not quite sure yet what I want to do with IR images in post.

Pretty happy about how easy they are to capture though.

Weird stuff is infrared.

Personally I'd edit them for monochrome, or inverse the colour channels for faux colour. You've got some good detail and no hotspots so you've done well. Can I ask what lens you used please?

E-M5, 12-50, R72 filter, handheld using a custom white balance (just grabbed WB from some whitish looking concrete).

If you look at the histogram, about all IR photos have a curve that doesn't extend fully to each side: black is dark grey and white is pale grey.

It's certainly a question of taste but stretching that curve, adding contrast and even accept to lose some very dark greys (as they become black), adds drama.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately I sold one of those without trying it for IR first. D'oh!

I ususally take WB from bright green grass, but I'd be happy with your results.

Cheers. That looks pretty cool.

I agree that the overall detail is pretty good, but I think there is a hotspot. Take a look at this false-color version - it has the typical red shift and lower contrast in the center.

And after a quick attempt to remove it.

I shoot a lot of IR using a Panasonic 7-14mm which definitely has a hotspot, but I normally manage to eliminate it in PP so it's not the end of the world. Well worth persevering!

LOL ! Yet, you did it (I've just improved it a little bit).

I agree. The cyan cast in the foliage doesn't appeal to me. Otherwise, they're quite nice, especially the third one.
