Autumn Infrared at Anderwood

Anderwood Colour Infrared

With the beginning of November, and a reasonable day – a stroll around the New Forest’s Anderwood Site is a pleasant walk.  Taking along a converted Digital Infrared Camera added to the fun.  The Cameras filter as mentioned before is a Canon 20D with an Enhanced Colour Infrared Filter (equivalent to 665nm Filter).

The trees and foliage provided interesting and varied scenary, with the leaves reflecting some of the light nicely.  Out of the trip these five images are my prefered ones, of which I converted 4 to the “Blue Skies” effect by swapping the red and blue colour channels in Photoshop.  Some further tweaking of the colours and details I did in Topaz Adjust.

In this final one, I desaturated the colour – and added a minor glow effect to simulate the look of black and white infrared film.
