"Infrared with D70s, Can't get the right color post edit"


Cold Spring Harbor, US
          

Hi everyone, I'm trying some infrared test shots with my D70s, the filter I use is a (don't laugh ) ilford-cokin gel filter for the sfx200(now discontinued i think). I do get the infrared glows in the raw files but the problem is I can't get the right color with the channel mixer in photoshop CS

before channel mixer:


after channel mixer:


all I did is in channel mixer: red channel: red->0% and blue->100% and blue channel: red->100% and blue->0%

anything I did wrong? it shouldn't be the filter cuz it all worked for Kodak, Ilford, and even Konica ir films.

I went through a similar thing. Its much better if you do a custom white balance with the IR filter attached and then do channel mixer and hue adjstment to get the colour you want.



Hope this helps,
