Infrared Camera Effect Photoshop


Whose Gravestone? Canon EOS D30 digital camera, 300mm f/2.8 IS with 2x tele-extender, Fine image quality setting, ISO 100, f/5.6 @ 1/320, 1440 x 2160 pixels, 1.1MB .jpg

When it came to creating a Photoshop 7 technique to simulate an infrared film effect, I knew that I could get a great one from Chris Maher. Chris has been very involved in all aspects of infrared photography. He and his business partner Larry Berman have gone so far as to tear apart and modify digital cameras so that they can shoot color infrared photos. If you enjoy infrared photography and you now use a digital camera, you must make a visit to their Web page at www.

If you want to avoid tearing apart your digital camera and modifying it (as I do), then you'll enjoy Chris' technique, which allows you to simulate an infrared film photo by using any color digital image and editing it with Photoshop 7. As many of my favorite infrared photos (those that were taken by others) have been taken in graveyards, I looked through my photo collection and found a blank gravestone to use for this technique.
