How do I create the stark, black-skied landscape images I’ve seen?

This is most easily achieved with the IR spectrum filter, but is also possible with the Full Spectrum in conjunction with a 720nm IR pass lens filter.

The resulting image needs to be desaturated, and a heavy contrast curve applied. RED cameras are ideal for this, as the high bit-depth source allows for very aggressive grading without banding.
