 I hope this period of isolation had been useful and productive for you. And I sincerely hope you are safe and healthy.
I have been doing a lot of edition work with old pictures to post on my Instagram feed. 

And I had the idea of creating some luts to help the edition or colorgrading work of others easier.
I have been decoding the colors of some famous images. And as usual, I go back to the movies I loved and seen. One of my favorites directors is Wes Anderson. 
I made some color palettes based on his films and I posted about the new movie.

Today I came with six luts based on Moonrise Kingdom, The French Dispatch & The Grand Budapest Hotel. I haven't tried yet with video, so if some of you try to use it for a movie or short, please tell me. 

The 3D lookup tables (3D LUTs) are used to map one color space to another. 

Check this easy tutorial on how to use LUTs:

Create a subtle or dramatic change in your photo’s appearance by applying a Color Lookup adjustment layer in Adobe Photoshop.

Now they are a native function in Photoshop. 
I was using curves to emulate some aesthetics of film colors. But LUTs allows you to use other tools from Photoshop and, in the end, you ship it everything in one file.

Here I made some examples of use of the LUTs. In some images you have to modify the opacity of the LUT and/or:
- add a curve to increase the luminosity of an image.
-correct the white balance.
-correct de exposure.
All the images I used as examples were previously color-corrected.

So, let's see what I got with these 3 LUTs :

 And these ones are some examples I created using images from Unsplash & Pixabay:
