HOW TO MAKE INFRARED PHOTO

Infrared photography was originally created for state surveillance, but as you know, using any shooting techniques in your work is only a matter of time (for example, as is the case with high-speed photography). Although it has been a long time since that time, and even the infrared film has already been discontinued, you can easily recreate the appearance of infrared photographs during post-processing in the editor.

Infrared photography transforms traditional landscapes into mystical, otherworldly pictures, filled with bright shades of supposedly chewing gum and a clear focus on the sky. In fact, infrared photography converts green hues into unique shades of red, pink, pale pink, or white, depending on the type of film used or the specific image processing method.

Why do all greens change color?

It is assumed that this type of photograph captures the spectrum of light that is not visible to the human eye, therefore, all the unusual tones. Infrared radiation has a longer wavelength than visible light, and using infrared photography allows people to shoot through haze and fog better than other types of photography (which is why it was originally used for observation).

If you are interested in experimenting with infrared film, the black and white version will be a more budget option than the color one. Using black and white infrared film allows you to create clear photos even in the foggy days. Although this is not the easiest type of photo playback, you can cheat – to create “strange landscapes” on the computer.

Unfortunately, not everything can be easily reproduced in Photoshop, and you still need a special filter to begin the process. Fortunately, it is relatively inexpensive and easy to find in any specialized photo equipment store.

Landscapes are the most common objects for infrared photography, as they usually contain a lot of green tones. The bright blue sky becomes dark blue or black, while the green tones take on a pale pink hue. Since infrared photography requires the use of long exposures, shooting live objects, people, or animals can be quite difficult.

The trick to infrared photography is that after you attach the filter, you cannot see anything in the viewfinder. This is because infrared filters are designed to block all visible light. Because of this, you will need to frame the picture and focus before attaching the filter.

The procedure for infrared shooting

Place the tripod on a stable surface in front of the subject, then attach the camera to the tripod. Build a composition. Set the focus ring on the machine – you will focus after attaching the filter.
The aperture should be of the order of f / 16 to ensure that the entire scene is in focus. The ISO value should be 100 or 200 to reduce the amount of noise in the photo. The shutter speed will vary from 1 to 30 seconds, depending on the subject, so you will need to take a few test photos with a filter to determine the appropriate duration of exposure.
Shoot in RAW format! This will make the post-processing process much easier.
After you have installed all your initial settings, set a filter, automatically focus the image and take a photo. And after you determine the correct shutter speed, you can take all the other shots.

This is the funniest part of the whole process. Depending on the type of filter used, the resulting image will be almost completely purple / violet / red. Dont be upset! That is how it should be. These tones are known as “false colors”, which can be quickly changed in the editor.

Open the image in Adobe Photoshop. Create a new adjustment layer, then select Channel Mixer. In fact – you need to swap the red and blue channels. To do this, select the red channel and drag red to 0%, and blue to 100%. Now select the blue channel and, conversely, drag the blue to 0% and the red to 100%.
You can leave the photo as it is or continue to make changes to the contrast, saturation or vibrancy of the image. An inconspicuous shade can turn bright and saturated with just a few mouse clicks.
By entering each individual channel (red, green, blue), you can also increase the amount of each color in the final image.
You want to get a lot of blue in the image, but do not want pink
