People have been asking me how do I achieve these looks and although I wont give away all of my secrets there are some key things to remember. NEVER shoot flat. Its better to reduce contrast optically with a lens filter than it is to do it digitally by reducing contrast which introduces a lot of unwanted artifacts. I keep my contrast raised to a point that ensures that the histogram is filled. And always make sure your white balance is as neutral as you can get it , if you own filmconvert you can adjust it to your tastes later which in turn affects how the image looks when you use the OSIRIS luts.
The next step is to apply a filmstock from FILMCONVERT I would advise you to research how each film was used so you can get a practical sense of when it should be used. Some films are optimized for tungsten lighting and others for daylight etc. In a way FILMCONVERT is a fast way to color correct an image and OSIRIS LUT's are used to color grade your footage. Pick your prefered OSIRIS LUT and voila you are done :-)
