Infrared photography has started to become very popular. Trees and grass in color photos turn white almost resembling snow. I have a friend who converted an older camera to Infrared and she has produced some really interesting photos. Since I don’t have an Infrared camera, for this theme I found the how to steps online to achieve Infrared in Photoshop. First of all, this is a HUGE step forward for me to follow directions of any kind about using Photoshop. I have been to several workshops, had friends sit with me and show me different things, I bought one of Scott Kelby’s Photoshop books after attending one of his workshops but, I have never left my comfort zone to try doing any type of processing besides the basic stuff. So I am giving myself a big pat on the back for finally trying something new on my own!
Below, I have included the original photo taken in downtown Sarasota. I really liked the vines on the building and they were just beginning to show some signs of green leaves. Also, I left the few palm fronds on the top right side of the photo to help add a little interest when the photo was processed. The second photo is the final product. I preferred the image converted into B&W.
