Short and sweet “how to” for utilizing the Invert Adjustment Layer as a means to achieve a color infra red effect.

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.
