    Love these Murray – the trees make such good subjects for IR it seems to show up their trunks much more and the fluffy pink leaves look so wrong and yet so right.

  2. The infrared is sooo pretty. But what is different with the process with the one with the blue leaves?

      In short – the blue and red channels have not been swapped in Photoshop.

      It starts I take an image with a converted IR camera. Then I import it into Lightroom using a special profile that extends the range for colour balance. At this stage the unprocessed image is shades of orange. I then optimise the overall exposure and contrast, the colour balance and the exposure of individual colour channels. This is the stage you see in the images with blue leaves.

      Next I take the image into Photoshop and swap the red and blue channels using the channel mixer. This changes the skies from reddish to bluish and in this case the tree trunks stay largely white.Finally I adjust the hue, saturation and luminance of individual colours and may make further adjustments to individual regions using masking.
