A long time ago

 On and off in the pre-digital 70s I experimented with infrared film. This picture was processed in Photoshop from a scan of one of those old negs. I have never worked with infrared outside the darkroom so this is all improv. If any of you know of any online examples of infrared via Photoshop, I'd love to look at them. Please send me a note.

P.S. I've also dug up negs that I shot on Ilford XP1 400 ASA film and developed god knows how (I don't remember). The negs have a brownish-orange cast and display infrared contrast and reverse densities.

For this project (both kinds of film) I  have in mind to get color into the mix somehow. Don't have a clue how to go about that (still a fumbling beginner in PS). Any suggestions welcome.
