The above image may appear to be a regular color photograph. Actually, you are looking at an infrared capture with false colors processed in Lightroom. In fact, there is a multitude of ways to treat an infrared capture as there is no correct color to speak of.
A little over three years ago, I wrote an article on channel swapping in Lightroom. However, I have found out that part of the process I described can be simplified and an alternate path may also be included. I also found my own instructions a bit confusing and decided that a simplified process is in order.
As I work on a process that will work on the current version of ACR and Lightroom, I have produced this set of images that shows the flexibility of infrared photography if one is interested in experimentations.
Below are the original capture and three variants directly coming from Lightroom with a little, one-time help from Adobe DNG Profile Editor. I understand that the editor is no longer available to download from Adobe, so I will provide links to download both Windows and Mac versions.
