Photoshop Actions for Color Infrared v3

I’ve updated my Photoshop Infrared Actions with more color swapping methods for color infrared images. These are designed for infrared images shot with a 470nm to 720nm filter. This version includes multiple channel mixer variations for more color options. I’ve included a set of extra actions if you wish to explore beyond the main set.

Here is a comparison of the output with each action.

This video walks shows you how to load actions into Photoshop and demonstrates each action.

Download the Photoshop Actions for Color Infrared v3 or view the blog for more details.

Ultraviolet Portraits

I've made my first attempt at shooting portraits in Ultraviolet light using a Full Spectrum camera and a UV bandpass filter. I've gotten some great constructive feedback from this video and purchased a lens that is reported to be ideal for UV. More to come...

Used Infrared Gear from KEH

I've purchased a number of infrared filters and lenses from KEH. Here is a selection of currently available used infrared gear.

On Deck

I recently purchased a used Fujifilm GFX full spectrum camera. This is a completely different lens mount and sensor compared to my typical kit. (It's not a problem, I can quit anytime.) So expect to see some diffraction tests, filter tests, and other videos coming for that.

My wife found a Canonet QL17 G-III film camera at an antique store and picked it up for $28. Either it works or I have a very cool $28 desk ornament! I think I just purchased the most expensive and least expensive cameras I've ever bought in the same week!

I'm working on a new set of LUTs for infrared video, based on the above actions.

Plus, a hundred more things on my backlog. More to come!
