The main concept of this process is to convert your photo into the right colour format, if you forgot to change your ISO/ white balance on your camera whilst using your lens, or if you simply prefer using photoshop. Infrared photography is an amazing technique, you can get some really beautiful photos and the lens costs £30 max on amazon/ ebay for a normal DSLR. The bit where I talk about how i like to leave the blue tint to it, is done when you don’t de-saturate it completely, but use the saturation panel to saturate it around 90%. Enjoy!

Excellent….1st ‘simple’ one to understand. However, my first attempt & pic’s are looking a bit flat, will keep playing :)) thanks

At last a video that actualy covers the basic of the change in this type of pic. Great stuff thanks.

By changing the channel mixer you’re not simple changing the colours, you’re changing the saturation, therefore making the colours ”pop” more and allowing them to become more visible. In the photo i’m using, whoever used it, the camera settings were enough for me to just convert it to b&w but in most, people forget to change their white balance etc, so it comes out completely black. That’s what this is aimed towards, and it’s why I haven’t skipped that step. I hope this makes sense!

Im confused. When you change the channel mixer settings and then you hit monochrome, it cancelled out all the adjustments you just did by clicking that. You switched it from a color image to a B&W so the channel settings you just inputted are void.

Thanks :) I uploaded this around a year ago, so I can’t remember, but I think it’s the same filter I’ve always had which I bought on amazon for next to nothing. Which is Hoya 52mm Infrared R72 Filter 🙂 It works really well, apart from that you can’t see what you’re focusing on (its completely black) but I love working with it! Adds some mystery ^^

Scott McCulloch says:
