Photography: Behind the Scenes with David Hamilton

a
all scans from Starr Crow

I can't believe that in all the time I've had this blog I haven't posted about David Hamilton. His dreamy soft focus 70s photos are the stuff blog dreams are made of. I was so excited when Starr posted these behind the scenes shots from a 70s era issue of Show magazine. I've seen so many of his photos but never this perspective of the photographer capturing the image.

These images also make me really excited about a few Hamilton worthy pieces I've picked up at the thrift store over the past couple of weeks. Now I just need to find some tall grass to stand in for photos!

These are awesome -- thanks for sharing them with us. It definitely inspires me to try a new technique with my landscape photos with the soft, dreamy focus.
