Ultimate Infrared with Lightroom

Skip Photoshop and Process Your Raw Digital Infrared Images Directly in Adobe Lightroom

With my custom profiles (included in this class), you’ll be able to perform channel-swapping on raw infrared photos without using Photoshop!

What if I told you that the limitations of Adobe Lightroom for processing digital infrared images could be completely removed, allowing you to make all of your creative adjustments to infrared raw files without having to resort to OEM software and Photoshop?

Well, over the last two years, I’ve developed a set of custom profiles and presets that allow me to do just that. I’m now able to process infrared images from my full-spectrum camera directly in Lightroom. Whether it’s the muted look from 720nm infrared, or the bold colors of a channel-swapped 590nm filter, I can do it all without going to Photoshop.

Join me on Zoom Thursday, April 11th 6-8pm US Eastern Time where I’ll be teaching this approach to processing infrared photos

Topics Include

  • Fundamental processing workflow for editing infrared raw photos in ACR/Lr
  • How to set proper white balance in Lightroom with a custom camera profile
  • Performing channel-swapping on color IR images directly in Lightroom (blue sky effect)
  • Creating 1-click presets for all types of infrared photos
  • 720nm infrared looks
  • 665 and 590nm color infrared processing
  • Monochrome conversion from color infrared photos
  • Creating glow effects in Lightroom
  • Using Masking tools to enhance infrared photos
  • Fixing problems like banding, hotspots, and vignetting

Bonus content included with this class

  • Preset for creating infrared DCP camera profiles using Adobe’s DNG Profile Editor software
  • My special channel-swapping profile for ACR/Lightroom to use with infrared photos
  • My ACR/Lr presets for enhancing infrared photos

Optional: I’ll create a custom set of ACR/Lightroom profiles for your infrared camera

If creating profiles and presets sounds like something you’d rather not attempt, you can choose the option to let me build you a custom set of infrared profiles and presets for your camera (one wavelength). You can then install them directly and use them right away without any trial and error.

Honey, I Shrunk My Kit!

Going small with an Olympus Micro 4/3rds System

Grizzly bear, Denali National Park | OM-1 with Olympus 100-400mm lens

Many of you know that I purchased an OM Systems OM-1 body and lenses in April of this year. Now that I’ve had some time with the system, I wanted to share my experience using this camera. I’ve now used my OM System kit for travel, portraits, and wildlife photography, and I’ve been astonished by the results. Many of the concerns I had about this small format sensor are simply not issues when using today’s gear and software.

I recently presented a webinar on my personal experience with the Olympus OM-1 kit, and you can watch the replay below.

Here are some of my recommended kits for OM Systems/Olympus Users
