Pro Technique: Digital Infra-red (IR) in Sepia

For this sepia -toned IR photograph above, I screwed an R720 (IR) filter onto my lense. With a saturated olive colored panel I used the Custom White Balance (CWB) setting on my Nikon DSLR under a shade on a cloudy day for a data reading. It was the longest expoure for a white balance picture reference at 30 seconds! By filling my frame with this olive-colored panel I’m assured of an approximately neutral colored green leaves. My camera settings are in colored Vivid mode. Of course you will need a tripod as my exposure took 30 seconds to make under cloudy skies. I shot in JPEG file mode and the colors were slightly enhanced in Adobe Photoshop.
