1. A method, comprising:
capturing, by an infrared imaging device, a first image of a scene using a first integration time;
determining a second integration time based at least on characteristics of the scene in the first image, wherein the second integration time is different from the first integration time;
determining a first scale factor based on the first integration time and the second integration time;
capturing, by the infrared imaging device, a second image using the second integration time, wherein the first image and the second image are infrared images; and
scaling the second image using at least the first scale factor.
