    if you don t know how to do this already HOWEVER a lot of cameras cannot set extreme infrared white balances in camera If you can t get your camera to work just shoot in RAW and set the WB later in post processing with a program called UFRAW This method should work with any camera UFRAW is way better than Adobe Camera RAW because it can set the white balance for infrared photography which A C R can t properly do Editing IR Photos in Photoshop The popular look for infrared photography have a blue sky instead of brown Image on the left is before the red blue channel swap image on the right is after it It s quiet easy to obtain this look In Photoshop go to Image Adjustments Channel Mixer Make sure the Output channel is selected on Red inside of the dropdown box Type in 0 for red and 100 for blue Next select the Blue output channel but selecting it in the drop down box Type in 100 for Red and 0 for Blue You ve just swapped all the red colors for all the blue ones Feel free to experiment with other channel swapping variations I ve seen pink and yellow foliage before If your foliage in your pictures look too red ish and you want them pure white like snow you can easily desaturate them using Image Adjustments Hue Saturation Select Red Alt 3 and then slide the saturation slider all the way down to 100 I would also recommend darkening the levels a little bit The 2 examples above was not adjusted for that and it looks a bit faded IR Examples Chart Keep in mind that this was a cloudy day If it was a pure blue sky the sky in the IR photos would look much darker Editing Infrared RAW Photos in Adobe Camera RAW If you want to set the white balance using Adobe products you can download the DNG Profile Editor and then watch this video tutorial describing how it is done But like I said before I recommend using UFRaw instead of Adobe products Using Two Infrared Filters May Get Better Results I have access to two Hoya R72 filters I stacked them on top of each other and used both of them on my lens simultaneously The results seem to have more color and depth People seem to debate about this What do you think The images on the left was taken with two IR filters stacked on top of each other and the image on the right was only taken with one Red blue channel swapped as well Nikon D50 Here is the video tutorial that goes along with this article It isn t as detailed as the written article but it has more infrared photo examples that this article doesn t have Tweet Tagged as art blue complete examples experimental filter guide how to hoya r72 infra red infrared landscape nature photography red

    hasn t ask Expect to get an answer within the first 10 120 minutes Camera Settings for Star Trails Photos Now that we have all the options out of the way let s just simply look at what settings we need to do when we are actually outside with our camera and tripod Depending on the weather your lens could possibly fog up completely In order to prevent this wrap some hand warmers around your lens with a rubber band or get a miniature fan to constantly blow wind onto your lens These things might not be necessary it all depends on how cold and humid it is Focusing Set your camera to manual focus and focus out into infinity Your camera won t be able to use Autofocus in these dark conditions Take a test shot to make sure your stars are sharp Exposure Time and ISO Now let s calculate the exposure If you are using one big long exposure and you re not combining a bunch of 30 second exposures take one 30 second exposure at ISO 1600 If it looks well exposed just take that 30 seconds and multiply it by 16 If you are using ISO 3200 multiply the shutter speed you used by 32 instead The number you get after multiplying the shutter speed you used for the test shot by the ISO you used for the test shot will tell you the shutter speed in seconds you will need to use when shooting at ISO 100 which is probably what you want to use when taking the actual shot Using ISO 200 should be fine when using that same exposure time too it will be a little brighter If you are taking a bunch of 30 second exposures and then combining them on the computer you don t need to do this because all of your frames are going to be 30 seconds Aperture What should the aperture be when shooting star trails It doesn t matter I usually use F3 5 on my 18 55mm lens White Balance Using anything other than AUTO WB will ensure a constant WB in each frame You ll need to do this if you are combining frames If you are doing one huge long exposure then it is okay to use Auto WB Using a Tungsten White Balance will make the sky a beautiful purple color Combining Multiple Star Trail Exposures Together If you ended up taking a bunch of exposures download the Startrails de program and run it it is pretty self explanatory so I won t go into detail here When you load your photos into that the Startrails de program will combine all of them nicely If you want to do this in Photoshop instead there is a special Photoshop Action available You can also do this in Photoshop by going to File Script Load Files Into Stack and then click OK Wait for all the images to load and then select all

    waters splashing against rocks The longer exposure the more misty the water will looks A lot of people use an ND400 Filter for long exposures during the day It allows 30 second exposure times Long exposures of waterfalls create that smooth soothing effect Silver Falls Oregon This looks blue and white because it was taken with an Infrared Filter attached to my camera lens Manual blend of 2 exposures 20 seconds for the water and 5 seconds for the sky The long exposure is made possible by the use of a ND400 filter Star Trails These are a great challenge and the best part is you don t know what the photograph will look like until after you ve taken it You will need to have your camera on a tripod manually focus to infinite use the widest aperture you can and a low ISO If you want to take 20 minute long exposure you will need to buy a cable release made for your specific DSLR However taking super long exposures can cause a lot of noise in images An alternative wave to doing star trails is to take a bunch of 30 second exposures and then overlap all the images on your computer using a program called Startrails There is a minor drawback to this method for every 30 seconds of an exposed photo there is a 1 2 second time period where the camera isn t taking an exposure This makes it so there are little tiny spots not visible in your star trail It is a very minor drawback but ultimately it is a better method because there isn t as much noise 20 minute exposure at F 3 5 ISO 200 or 400 Other Fun Long Exposures A creative use for the ND filter would be to take a picture of a watch or clock In this 4 minute long exposure you can see each second hand as it moves around the clock These eyes were constantly moving while the camera took a 1 5 second exposure No Photoshop This was a one second exposure Half of the exposure the eye was open then after 5 seconds the eye was shut What you see is the eye both open and closed at the same time This is a long exposure at night time of snow falling The snow was illuminated with a light and a tree is in the background 3 seconds This is an example of Solargraphy Solargraphy is the process of taking long exposures with pinhole cameras that last several MONTHS to record the light of the sun This is a 6 month exposure taken by solarigrafia on Flickr There are also other things you can do with long exposure photography Long exposures during the day allow water and clouds to blur leafs on a tree will also blur if there is wind In addition you can also take a long exposure in a very crowded city where lots of people are walking
