Cloudy Day

First time out in the new year. I was trying out the new (to me) Panasonic G3 infrared converted camera I picked up recently on eBay.

IR photography typically provides a fantasy-like rendition of color and tonal relationships. The most common and obvious is that green foliage is rendered white. In January, there isn’t much foliage and the effect is much more subtle. In this case there is very little that would give away the IR camera. The output of he camera is almost pure monochromatic in spite of the fact that the raw files have a strong red cast to them. But the workup in Lightroom and Photoshop with the new Luminar as a plug-in gave me the tools to massage the image to bring out the texture in the active sky.
