One of my favorite ways to capture an IR image is to shoot through the trees on a crisp clear day with a cloudless sky.  Fortunately this is exactly what is plentiful this time of year in South Florida.

My processing steps were a channel mixer swap of the blue channel only.  Actually I used a Kolarivision action to do just that, then followed by a hue adjustment on the blue channel.  The base image was taken with a Lumix GX1 converted with a 590nm filter.

Almost doesn't look like an infrared shot, but it is!  Got my 7-14mm wide last week and had to try this.  Can't wait to explore more of what I can do with that lens.

One of the best things about infrared photography is that you can shoot at mid-day and not worry so much about the high contrast.  In fact, sometimes it works on your behalf!

For this shot I skipped the usual blue/red channel swap and went with the colors right out of the camera, but adjusted in Photoshop to enhance and mute colors.

Thank you.  I used a Panasonic GX1 converted with a Lifepixel supercolor filter,  590nm.

A lot of you may recognize the name of Holiday Park - It's the home base of the Gator Boys, the by now famous guys and gals who's alligator conservation efforts are chronicled in the weekly television show.

Holiday park is located in Davie, Florida on the northeastern edge of the Florida Everglades.

I needed a boost of creativity before work this morning, so I fired up LR and went to town on this image.  Very heavy post processing using;

Color Efex 4 - 4 filters, incl Detail Extractor and Color Contrast
PhotoShop - Channel Mixer R/B color swap, Hue/Sat, and sharpening
Lightroom - Noise reduction and additional sharpening

It won't scale up for printing due to the heavy PP, but it looks good here.

Nice.  I have a double-RB swap action in my channel mixer that provides something similar but like yours better.

I  wasn't planning on replacing my GH3, but with reviews like this for the GH4, I'm starting to sway.......

In case it helps, here's our take as well --> "7 things we discovered after shooting 4K with the GH4. You won’t like #4." http://bit.ly/GH4FieldTest

Story

Just another guy with a camera - South Florida
Introduction
A South Florida based photographer with a passion for local wildlife and Everglades landscapes. The weather in South Florida is great year round, and affords me an opportunity to enjoy varied landscapes with dramatic clouds, my favorites.

I'm by no means a "pro", nor do I have any interest in "going pro". I'm just another guy with a camera, or two, that's blessed to have a day job that allows me to enjoy photography purely for the fun of it.

Thanks for looking through the galleries. I hope you like what you find. - Andy
