You want to set the white balance on green foliage after. But what makes it difficult is that you need a VERY long exposure on the NEX series in order to get a descent pic with enough colors for white balance. The NEX has a very good IR cutoff filter in front of the sensor, which is why the NEX is not best for IR photography without a conversion.
