Garston Wood RSPB site is a great place for spring flowers – especially Bluebells and Wild Garlic, and I have take lots of shots there, both as landscapes and closeup / macro shots of the flowers etc. This spring I also took a converted infrared camera along.
The camera has a filter equivalent to 665nm Filter and is often refereed to as an Enhanced Infrared Filter, letting more colour through than the normal 720nm Standard filter. It makes the camera more suited to Colour infrared as the colours are more saturated.
This first image has had the blue and red channels swapped in what is often called the “Blue Skies” action, as the effect it gives is to turn the orange/red sky to blue. I then altered the hue of the yellows that this produces, to a pink. Some further saturation tweaks were carried out using Google Nik Viveza 2 on the colours.
I also find it good for general black & white infrared conversion, though it lacks the contrast of the 720nm.
These two following shots have been converted to black and white, and then given a glow to them in photoshop. This to attempt to replicate the look of infrared film.
