12 LUTs to boost your workflow
An infrared LUT, what for?
Digital processing of infrared photos suffers from software limitations that slow down or even prevent a continuous workflow. The main limitations concern the restriction of white balance settings as well as the absence of an RGB channel mixer in derawtizers such as Lightroom or Camera RAW.
To overcome these limits and allow you to process your infrared photos from A to Z with these softwares, I have developed a pack of 12 LUTs optimized for both photo and video.
These infrared LUTs have been optimized to reveal their full potential with Adobe softwares, including Lightroom Classic.
They are based on a specific adjustment of the white balance combined with an optimized correspondence table to guarantee a wider and more subtle range of nuances than with a classic RGB channel mixer.
#1 - LUT classic B&W
Advisable IR filters: from 695nm to 1000nm.
Features: this infrared LUT is dedicated to black and white, and offers a rendering that is both rich in shades of gray and well contrasted.
Black and white conversion is also supported, so you just have to apply this LUT to your RAW file and enjoy the result!
#2 - LUT classic white
Advisable IR filters: from 695nm to 720nm.
Features: this infrared LUT allows you to easily achieve bright white vegetation rendering typical of Hoya R72 or Kolari Vision 720nm filters.
The shades of white and blue can then be adjusted independently of each other for a personalized rendering according to your tastes.
