Digital IR

So HBR lent me his digital IR camera. It's a very interesting device. Here are a few of my first efforts with it --

Duluth Pack


Copper Top

So, this is different than any other IR I have seen.
Multi colored IR?
Isn't it usually Blue and white? Or like coal black skies and bright white foliage.

I think you have been playing with the white-balance. If you want to ge it closer to the "true" IR, do a custom white-balance off of a green subject (grass, etc.) and shoot in JPG so any RAW conversion attempt won't mess up the color balance.

But, if you are playing with the color after-capture, then just forget what I just said.

Playing with the color afterward. As we all know, IR doesn't technically have any "color" -- it's just that cyans and pinks are how the sensor interprets what it sees. I thought it would be interesting to shift the hue until one object in the photo was its traditional color (in the three middle images, I used the sky, in the stop sign I used the sign itself) and see what color everything else landed on.
