Fruitstand - Infrared

It’s taken me a while to get around to it, but I’ve made a Lightroom preset that creates this interpretation from the Lifepixel converted XT RAW file.  It uses one of the custom DNG profiles I made and a bunch of LR tweaks.  I’m pretty happy with it so far.  It does have a tendency to blow out highlights, but that can be easily corrected with one of the graduation filters, or by dropping the exposure a bit.  But it’s a very good starting point.

wow, that looks great… found a plugin for ps that does something similar but haven’t messed with it yet, these look great.

Thanks! I have never been able to get a really good infrared look from a normal file which is why I went through the Lifepixel route. Even then, it took me some time to get a good b&w look from the infrared file. But I’ve got it down now.
