IR daytime photography

G'day
I have a full spectrum camera and trying to take daytime IR images.
Anyone know of any good tutorials regarding processing techniques?

Cheers Carl

There is a photoshop action for processing IR images I have used. Its free and it gives them a slight bluish look. Very nice. You'd have to google for Photoshop IR action to see what comes up.

I used to play around a lot using a hoya R72 IR filter, manually white balance off something green (grab some paint swatches from Bunnings, see what gives you a result you like or just use any available trees/grass). the shots out of camera were what I wanted, no need for post processing.

Really it depends on what you're after. IR processing is a personal thing. Some people want colour, some want black and white, some want a strong effect some not so much.

Me personally I like a strong effect and black and white. I tried the Hoya R72 filter and wasn't pleased with the results. I wanted even more. The Hoya RM90 ended up being my favourite filter and produces an insane IR effect.

Had a bit of a play some time back with the Hoya R72 filter and liked what I got right off the camera, an unmoded Pentax K10D. Played a bit with white balance and got this sort of effect and liked it.

I used a modded Canon 20D and an Xnite CC1 filter to go back to colour to take IR/Colour composite shots. I developed a processing procedure to do it.

Some lens work with IR better than others. Some have a hot spot in the middle of the lens.
