"Cleveland Skyline"



Here's an often photographed view of the Cleveland Skyline and Veteran's Memorial Bridge.

For those interested, the shot was taken from the west side of the Cuyahoga River just to the north of the Center St Bridge.

I kept the faux color rendering as well as the B&W.

Bill,

I enjoy both renderings. For me, the contrast in the B&W version is very well done and is very appealing. The white really pops against the dark background.

Hey Bill,
Both of these are well done. I personally like the color version. The blue and gold with whispy clouds gives a surreal feeling. That said, I would be happy with either photo in my portfolio.

I shoot many a wedding and portrait there...

I also have a converted D90, although to 715nm. Let's touch base, maybe we can do an IR photo shoot sometime. I know several other IR photographers in this area and we get together on occasion.

Both the versions are excellent.

Which IR filter is your camera converted to?
Would you mind explaining step by step your workflow? It would certainly help newbies like me.

Rohinton,

Thanks.

My camera is a D90 with a LifePixel Super Color Filter. The major steps of my workflow are as follows:


  1. White balance in post processing using NX2 since my camera can not auto WB
  2. Import into LR for cataloging, and on a case by case basis, I may adjust exposure, shadows, and highlights (based on experience)
  3. Open in Photoshop
  4. Swap Red/Blue channel
  5. Adjust levels if necessary
  6. Adjust Hue and Saturation to taste on the Faux Color version
  7. Use photosop tools and plugins such as Color Efex, Viveza, and/or Topaz Clarity if desired; with masking as necessary
  8. If I like the Faux Color, will sharpen and save it, and undo the sharpen
  9. I convert to BW using NIK Silver eFex and sharpen the BW if necessary
  10. flatten the Photoshop layers and save
  11. perform final tuning of the image in LR if necessary


While the above describes the major parts of my workflow, I must admit in reality the workflow is a not a true step by step recipe. By that I mean my actual processing of any particular image is a little more free form using additional steps or skipping steps as the image requires. As my grandmother always would do when she was baking - no written recipe, use a dash of this, a pinch of that, and stir until you like the taste. Pastry never tasted exactly the same when baked, but it was still really good.

There is a pinned topic by Rick describing how to WB in Lightroom and Photoshop. I have used his method with some degree of success. Now that NX2 is running more reliably on my desktop, I have used NX2 more recently. WB using either method has relative advantages and has been discussed in other topics in this forum.

Thank you for the detailed workflow.

I am not using NX2. I have created a profile for my D200IR using Adobe's DNG Profile Editor so that I can work using PS instead of NX2.
