I have to do this shoot where we want to emulate David Hamilton's photography look. Any ideas as to how he achieved his look? Thanks!

he would just blow on his lens causing fog and shoot the same scene until the lens clears up giving him choices of degree of diffusion.

Didn't he use vaseline on a clear filter ? (thought I had read that somewhere or at least was it some other photographers who's work was very close to his)

vaseline would create streaks on the diffused portions of your image.

In a pinch you can make a quick diffusion filter by spraying dulling spray (hair spray or other clear liquid will also work) into the air and waving a clear filter through the mist. Do it several times to make it heavier.
Be considerate and only do it only to your own glass and never to a plastic filter which would be ruined forever.
