About this tutorial:
Well this is the first tutorial that I have created in my new office since I moved in and I hope everyone enjoys this video tutorial. Looking on YouTube I didn't find many video tutorials on creating retro/vintage photos from the 70's. What few I did find I felt were lacking a bit or were more aimed at Photoshop and not really for Lightroom. So I hope this video tutorial is useful and informative for anyone looking to re-create a 70's look photo for fun or professionally.
The photo used in this video tutorial was taken on a Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i) and the Canon EF 75-300mm mark III lens. This lens is a older lens and has no image stabilization, also in optical quality it is starting to become a little soft. Since this lens has no IS and I was shooting at the full 300mm (480mm on a cropped sensor camera like the 600D used). I had my sensor sensitivity bumped up to ISO400 and was shooting at 1/800th second. Aperture was at f/5.6 to try to soften the background up. As always for normal photos I was shooting RAW and using ProPhoto RGB. No filters were used in this shot.
