IR imagery in Incandescent Light

Going a step further with the same Iris,

Faux IR Iris

I took an image with my IR camera and adjusted it in Lightroom 4 so as to take the background to black. As the light was an incandescent source the true IR was not evident. Additional adjustments in LR4 yielded this.

Iris Close-up – the effect of white balance

Decided to do some close-up work this morning with an iris (indoors).  The flower was lit with two simple reflector based workman’s lamps each with a 60 W incandescent bulb.  The first setup was created with auto white balance fooling the camera a bit to consider a cloudy situation thereby enhancing the warm tones.

This next image is with a slightly different composition and crop created after doing a custom white balance to have color accuracy despite the mixed light.   Both images were photographed using the identical background.
