Infra Red photography
« on: May 07, 2018, 10:55:41 PM »
In case there are any ML based IR photographers out there, I thought you might like a read of the last two posts on my blog: here is the second one http://photography.grayheron.net/2018/05/tent-rocks-in-infrared.html

First, ML is a great aid in IR photography, eg ETTR and my IR sensitive Focus Bar script; and second the latest release of LR allows you to carry out channel swapping via a LUT based profile, without having to go to Photoshop.

Cool. Have you tried HDR with infrared? Would be interesting, I think. I'm doing experiments with HDRMerge and the new tone mapping from Rawtherapee 5.4 ("HDR Tonemapping", fattal method), and the results at ISO 100 is incredible, there's virtually no noise, even when pushing tones.

I have looked at bracketing, however, with my IR converted EOSM, I find I don't need to bracket.

The reason I like having my IR camera with me is the fact the 'best' time to shoot is in the middle of the day and I usually find there is enough IR light for a single capture.
