2. Raw Processing of Infrared Photos
Raw processing is mostly similar to how you would normally process any image. The main difference is selecting a new profile (the one we just created with the DNG profile editor) and adjusting the white balance.
Let’s open a new infrared photo and go through the processing steps:
3. Now adjust the white balance Temperature and Tint to get a neutral look. Edit the image as you would process any other photo. I prefer to crop my portrait photos to a less narrow, 4:3 or 5:7 aspect ratio:
You can also reduce the saturation a little for a more monochrome look.
Finally, we will open the photo in Photoshop CC and add some adjustments to bring out the image’s true colors.
