Amazing capture! What a powerful image. Was this shot on infrared? #851108

Hi Jessica, Glad you liked the shot!
Actually, it is just a digital shot with my Canon 5D. I used Alien Skin's Exposure plug-in for Photoshop to make it look sepia toned and add the punch that gives it the IR look and feel. If you don't use this plug-in, you should! :-) I show it in my Photoshop Tips and Tricks class here at BP, and it is a fantastic plug-in!!
Hope you are able to get it and play with it. They have a free trial of it on their site:
see ya and have fun.

P.S.: BTW, it comes with a color and black and white plug-in. This image was done with the B&W one. You pick a film look that you like, and then you begin playing with the other cool settings and you come up with your own variation that hopefully gives you what you want!! I cannot live without this plug-in. I use it for tons of images - both the color and B&W ones. #5473845
