#SeeingRed: Heading back to the office from lunch walk and just about to pass Jackson and the Art Institute. This shot is from the north west tip of Grant Park.
Infrared shot converted in Luminar using a standard blue and red channel swap. Since this camera has a 590nm LifePixel filter and passes orange and yellow bands of visible light, in addition to near infrared light, the usual result would have been a blue sky with yellow foliage. In order to imitate the standard R72 Hoya filter with its 720nm cutoff, all one has to do is to selectively desaturate the orange and yellow channels and here we are – a great look of a “standard” IR filter with nearly monochrome picture where green grass and leaves glow white and sky still remains blue. Here in particular, the sky turned out to be fascinating as the top portion were heavy clouds (no blue), smoothly transitioning into broken cloud cover with patches of blue sky. Like the leading lines too.
