Hello, Farktographers. Very nice images from many of you here. I’ve enjoyed the contest for quite some time now. (in lurk mode) I decided to jump in on the streetlight theme with an IR photo of mine. However, I was wondering….There is a PP technique called “false colour” that is commonly used for IR shots. It’s really just a color swap done in channel mixer, swapping the reds with the blues. Since it is so commonly used, I was wondering if this is an acceptable form of PP that is allowed. I did do a search and read one thread that almost answered my question, but I thought I should ask this before I consider an entry of this type in the future. Thank you for your time, and keep clicking !August 18, 2007 at 3:52 pm #13046schneeParticipant
Hey there FutherMucker, welcome to Farktography. I saw your Streetlights entry in the theme’s Boobies and decided that I liked the cut of your jib.
I think that since you’d be swapping colors across the entire image (and not in selective areas), you’d be OK. Until you start winning every theme and then we’d have to DQ the technique. But that’s just me.August 18, 2007 at 8:26 pm #13047
Schnee, thank you kindly for your reply. I appreciate your time, and was hoping someone would say that. I’m a bit of an IR junkie lately !

I don’t know a damn thing about IR or anything film related so I have nothing to contribute to that conversation. Regardless, welcome to the forum and the contests! 🙂August 19, 2007 at 12:41 am #13049ElsinoreKeymaster
Welcome aboard! I’d go with schnee on this one. We’ve discussed channel mixer to obtain b/w images before, and like schnee said, it applies the modifications evenly across the image. Is the false color done to images already obtained in IR to enhance the effect or is this just a way to simulate IR?August 19, 2007 at 5:52 am #13050
Thank you for the welcome, millera9 & Elsinore.
Yes, Elsinore. The false colour technique is used on images that were taken in IR but with the custom white balance I use, the images have a strange, orange-ish hue in the skies. The channel swapping is done to make it appear more “normal”, but other things in the frame still have that distinct, IR look to them. Thanks again for the warm welcome, people !
I look forward to enjoying your work.September 3, 2007 at 3:53 am #13051

Thank you, Curious.
Česk?: Děkuji = Thank you.
Google doesn’t tell me what is “Jib”……Maybe is not my friend, but I still wonder what is “Jib”. Děkuji for attempt. 🙂September 3, 2007 at 7:15 am #13054RcMacStudentParticipant
Literally, a jib is a triangular sail at the very front of the sailboat (here for a picture)
Schnee was using jib figuratively, and was trying to say that he likes your style.September 3, 2007 at 7:25 am #13055
