Now I don't have access to nubile young ladies, or even non nubile old ones at present , 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!!

Nice soft lighting
nylon stocking over the lens.
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.
Didn't he used to have a show on Radio 1 ????
I thought He also directed a few films, I could be wrong
I presume we're talking about this David Hamilton?
Yes, the same
