    game to find the infrared focusing spot You CAN use the cameras autofocus it will just be slightly out of focus I ve taken many photos like this anyway Try a few test shots using the autofocus you may find it acceptable Also try using higher F numbers to increase the depth of field that might help a little bit Infrared Photography allows the use of longer shutter speeds You also CAN take infrared pictures without using a tripod but it is not recommended You will need to use high ISO numbers and low F numbers and those usually are not good for landscapes Just avoid all of that mess by using a tripod Your photographs will look a lot more professional Now if you haven t noticed by now the Hoya R72 filter is DARK This will substantially increase shutter speeds If you need shorter shutter speeds you can raise the ISO number and lower the F number I usually don t do much of that myself though If your photos are coming out too dark just bump up the EV until you are satisfied The shutter speeds will be quite long when using the IR filter depending on how sensitive your camera is to IR Setting The White Balance for Infrared Photography After taking some photographs with your filter you may have realized that your pictures are completely RED In order to fix this just meter and set the White Balance with your filter on Google How to set white balance with YOUR CAMERA MODEL for instructions 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
