    Hi Patrick! Thanks for another great interview 🙂
    I wanted to ask you a quick question about lenses if that’s cool!
    From experience do you find that you can get similar results of an old lens (like the still above with the guy sat at the bar) by using modern glass and using diffusion filters? I always seem to find that filters make the highlights glow a lot but don’t have the same feel of older, softer glass. What do you think?

    Also your new work has been looking great, keep up the good work!

      Not really. Best just to go straight to the old glass if that is the look you want.
