The Essentials of Infrared Post Processing

The renaissance of infrared

Infrared photography has experienced a renaissance of the past few years, and aspect2i has been one of the forerunners teaching and celebrating this genre of photography.

The most common approach to infrared image editing is the to create an image that is stark black and white image with and high contrast with the foliage being rendered almost white and blue skies almost solid black. This is one approach that we can all adopt, but we think there is far more to explore!

A new approach 

Over the last eight years Paul Gallagher and Michael Pilkington have been refining and fine tuning an approach to infrared image editing that produces images and prints that often have been described as having that “dark room print” look. 

Create beautiful rich tones

The starting point is often a raw file with a bluish/ reddish cast, that when converted to black and white, leaves the photographer with a vast plethora of choices.

​​It is these choices that we share with you on this online class and we show you how to create beautifully subtle black and white infrared images that display sumptuous mid tones, with glowing shadows and gentle highlights. We also keep the approach simple.

Simplicity at it's best

There is no need at all to make this process over complicated in Lightroom of Photoshop, and the techniques we share allow you to steadily reveal the true potential of your files.
