Cheap Trick for "Digital Infrared" Pics

This was converted to grayscale with slight contrast increase
Here is an unedited color image shot through the sunglasses.

I was fishing with my son when I put on a pair of polarizing "blue blocker" sunglasses - the amber colored type.  When I saw how the green leaves turned white, I decided to try putting the sunglasses in front of a different lens. Then at home, playing around, I tried converting the orange-tinted images to grayscale using my favorite quick editor. A little extra contrast, and suddenly I had something fairly close to an image shot through a red filter on infrared film.

These were taken along the Delaware Canal (which parallels the Delaware River) in Washington Crossing Park, Bucks County, PA. Think George, wooden teeth and all, standing in a crowded rowboat. Icy river. Flag flying. Trenton, NJ. Christmas Eve. That Washington Crossing.

  • 5/30/06 - Silky (silky_43701)Nice Grey, very nice.
  • 5/29/06 - Grey Lensman (GreyLensman2)Midus - I use a couple of shareware programs that offer a grayscale and a sepia option. My favorite is PolyView. It has a great slide show mode, and is the easiest for navigating through a folder full of pics. The other one is use is FastStone Image Viewer. This one has a great set of border and effects options. Both are available for free download at My thanks to everyone who has visted, and especially to those who left a post.
  • 5/28/06 - Midus (midustouch)Oh I do like the results! I always did like b&w photography but it's not been practical with a digital. This is a great trick and one I'm going to try! Hmmm...wonder if I could find sunnies that would produce a sepia effect? Nice shots btw - they'd make really lovely note cards. Vickie.
