I want to show you a relatively simple way to jazz up your images and give them an artsy look. This involves blending layers. Simply put, we are going to stack two images, one on top of the other and then blend the two. Watch this short video. For this video, I am using Photoshop CS5 and an Infrared image that was taken using a Canon 50D converted with an Enhanced IR filter.
Here are some other examples of Infrared images with texture layers added. I encourage you to start collecting your own texture images and try blending some into your Infrared work.
