    Lori this looks awesome!! I want to try this…….
    May I ask what a 720 IR filter is, brand name etc etc, and do you need to do the editing in PS only, or could I get away with using Canon software?

  • Hello David! Thanks for the kind compliment. I borrowed the filter from my friend Sharon (I’ll have to find out the brand name and send you more information tomorrow). My post editing in photoshop included, tweaking the levels, contrast, hue and saturation. I didn’t follow any rules…. just experimented until I saw something I liked! I’m not sure how much of this you can do using Canon software (I never used it).

    This is so dramatic and beautiful! I was not aware that a filter could be used, thought a whole camera had to be converted! Must look into this….

  • Thank you very much Joanne!
