Film Edits

I'm sure it's no surprise that I enjoy stalking other photographers and drooling over their beautiful images and editing styles. Well recently I decided I really wanted to figure out what these people are doing and so after some googling I decided I wanted to try out edits that emulate old film images. VSCO cam is the new thing for presets of this style, but A. I don't want to pay B. I want to learn what I'm doing so I can make fine adjustments to get things just right.
I found a few tutorials and youtube videos and decided to give it a quick try tonight.
So hopefully these images look a bit more like some slightly grainy film images.

The fish one is my favorite. I think I over sharpened the first one and the last one just doesn't seem to work well with the film color profile I used.
But like I said, this was my first try, just a quick experiment to see how all the layers flow together.
I think it's a good start.
