Lightroom How-to: Make your digital images look like film

I shoot as much film as possible, but sometimes I need to shoot digital images with my Canon 5D MK II.

My goal with digital images is to have them match as closely as possible my film images. Here is one way I do that.

Key points:

*Don't overwork the image
*Neutral color temperature is the goal
*Low contrast, low black point: subtle contrast is best
*Don't use actions or textures
*Expose to the right (overexpose) for the original RAW image
*Unblock and lengthen the tonal range by increasing brightness slider
*Correct lens distortion with the correct lens profile
