How to emulate Aerochrome

The Aare is still high, but the rain has subsided, at the moment the weather is really summery again. I took advantage of the sun today to try out my converted and painted Nikon D70. To emulate Aerochrome, you need the right camera, the right lens and the right filter combo. Older lenses are definitely better. In this case I used a Nikon zoom lens, 28-80mm as well as the Orange + X1 filter combo. Post-processing was a bit extensive on this one to really tease out the red color palette. Extensive by my standards. I set the values in Photoshop Raw Converter as follows:

White Balance
Temperature: 2500
Tint: 23

Contrast and brightness a little up.

Color Mixer
Greens: -30
Blues: -30

Then swap the color channels and set a vintage filter.
