    Now I don't have access to nubile young ladies, or even non nubile old ones at present Sad, but does anyone know how David Hamilton used to (still does?) get such lovely soft, hazy, grainy pictures? I know it was in the film days, I played around with GAF 500 myself a lifetime ago but my pictures never even vaguely resembled his. The quality of light he got and the degree of softness still haunts me twenty/thirty years later.

    I know there are a lot of talented people on this site so, if anyone can, please tell me how he did it!!

    Thanks,
    Dave aka bluesandtwos

    A lot of his images used contre jour lighting; shooting into the light even to the point of allowing a little bit of lens flare at times. Processing style plays a big part with softer, pastel colouring and some images looked softened as if he had shot through a stocking.

    I would recommend studying some of his work and seeing if through choice of lighting and processing you can replicate or get close to the effect.
