pretty simple really.
1. get an IR filter
2. do some long exposure shots on sunny days...and you will get a RED picture
3. correct for WB in photoshop
4. mix the colors by using the Channel Mixer
5. Edit to taste
I used the HOYA R72 filter for this but I'm not sure why I'm getting a hot spot in the center of the image. My guess is that since I used a step up filter there's more glare?? anyone more knowledgeable with optics can sort this out for me?
But anyways, yes this was a really fun experiment. Hardly something I'm proud of just yet. I'm just pretty stoked I managed to get the effects somehow right.
