No camera modification. No post editing. Just an EPL 1 set to monotone, and a Polaroid IR720 filter. Focus, then place the filter on, and set your exposure time. Trial and error. Not perfect IR, but not bad. And I didn't have to sacrifice a camera, though one day I just might.

60 sec exposure with the lumix 14-140mm.

I used an infrared filter and...a polarizer!

Just got my E-PL2 converted by Life Pixel, Super Color filter. I’m still learning how to process the images using GIMP.

We were at my Mother-in-law’s house for an early Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. I really wish they’d fix up that beautiful truck, it’s just sitting there rusting away.

Fantastic. I'm intrigued. Can I ask you, did you do anything special, or choose a specific kind of filter to get the trees in yellow?

Thanks. With the Super Color IR filter from Life Pixel, after you do the color channel swap, the sky will come out blue, and the foliage will come out yellow. You can go to their web site and they have samples comparing the different filters.

At that point, you can increase or decrease saturation for each color as you desire. Then, if you want, you can change the hue for the yellows and/or the blues, to get the look you want. All the foliage was yellow, and I adjusted the hue to get it red or pink.

Thanks for your reply, I appreciate the explanation. Again intriguing, I'll look into it.
Keep the images coming!

Great shots, showing a real variety of finishes. I particularly like the last two crystal ball shots.

A 'superblue' filter (like BG3) can give blue skies & yellow foliage SOOC with the right CWB. But I don't think the pink shots could be easily done with a superblue.
I think the look is also achievable using a hue adjustment of a 560nm (or similar) filter image. which is more likely here since guzziknight mentioned his camera has a 'super color' conversion. (Wow did it really take me ~50 minutes to compile my reply!)

I was at The University of Georgia yesterday on a tour since my stepson is considering going there. Here are a few of the images I took.

Very nice. What is your typical editing work flow on these? Mostly curious how you are getting the vibrant selective color while keeping the greys and whites correct. Are you masking parts of the image when editing?

I bring the RAW files into the Olympus software to do a white balance, and export them as Tiff files. I’ll then open those files in Photoshop and do a color channel swap. I have two preset actions, one gives me yellow foliage and blue sky, the other gives me white foliage and blue sky.

From there, I’ll adjust shadows, highlights, and saturation. Sometimes I’ll make all the yellow foliage a different color. Other times, I’ll use the selection tool and select specific foliage areas, and change just those colors.

Mostly, I just experiment, since I’ve only been shooting infrared for a few months. I was shown this work flow after I got my camera back from Life Pixel. They include a live 30 minute online training class with the conversion.

Hope this helps.
