Capturing and Editing Infrared Images

Tony Sweet
Duration:   4  mins

Magnolia Gardens in South Carolina is filled with beautiful green oak trees. In this video, professional shooter Tony Sweet photographs those trees and shows you why green works wonderfully for infrared images. You will learn framing techniques, camera settings, and how to edit infrared images with a digital sandwich.

Tony sets up his tripod and frames a canopy of hanging oaks. He shoots two long exposures at f-22, the second with a soft focus filter to create that delightful infrared glow. In the editing suite, he goes into Aperture and Photoshop software and shows you how to use adjustment tools including exposure, saturation, contrast and photo merging.
