MGA Primavera

MGA Primavera is based on a generic old film look. It has lovely tones that make it perfect for all types of photography. In my photograph collection I have many images that just look different, and this is the kind of look that they seem to give. It’s a recipe that could match any number of old film types, but I names it Primavera after a filter in Photoscape X Pro, as it looked very similar to the results that gave.

The following examples show the beauty of this recipe. It’s quite simply old-skool in every aspect of it’s look. I’m hoping this one will be loved by those who choose to try it out.
