Infrared at Bentley Wood.

Visited Bentley Wood on Saturday and decided to try some macro shots with my Enhanced Colour Infrared Converted Canon 20D.  Sun was out and in the clouds so picking the ones in light was interesting.  I also played about with my White Balance setting it to shots taken against sun lit green foliage, white paper and grey card (I had red that for my filter conversion type that white/grey is better than green).  I found personally using different ones created interesting results.

I used Canon DPP software to convert the RAW files, and then played about with them in Photoshop for the final colouring and levels.

Here’s my results from the outing.
