Getting a 60s/70s film look

Hi all, I'm predominantly a photographer with a few retouch skills. I'm just working on a shoot at the moment and I'd like to get a 60s/70s feel to the final images.
A point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Getting a 60s/70s film look

usually a cross processed curve will give you a nostalgic look....basically reverse the enpoint of the R, B channels slightly. softer contrast as well gives a washed out look.

a bit of film grain helps aswell (added to your digital files)

instead of adding blurred noise, we actually shot a gray card in studio when we were slow one day with a couple of different films and speeds, on a medium format camera, scanned it, and D&B'ed it until it was about neautral edge to edge, i love adding the 3200 grain to an image, looks great! and nothing beats real film grain!

I use the "anvil" preset more than others, yes it's useful if you have to get something done quickly, also it tends to give me ideas i can use at another time. It's a handy tool for the plug in box.
regards,
Gary..

Here is a link to a few tutorials and one of them is cross processing which might give you the effect you are looking for.

You could try Alien Skin Exposure. Works pretty good.
