    I shot this many years ago, which is a clue in itself. How did I get this effect. Whoever figures it out will get a free outdated roll of film. Philip.:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Hi JonathanM, your sort of on the right track, but no, sorry.

    that was my guess but the pattern is wrong... I would say matte spray over a uv filter or piece of old glass over the lens. Reminds me a lot of a wedding shot I made through the leaded glass door of a sanctuary that did not allow cameras inside.

    maybe screenwire

    I used to have a uv filter with a quarter sized clear spot in the center and fogged all around. I know it was as quarter because it is what I used.

    This is more what I'm thinking....an inexpensive filter that was treated with something....possibly vaseline? And slightly overexposed to heighten that ethereal effect. Nicely done, however you did it! :thumbup:

    You're all going in the right direction but haven't got it yet. As a hint, I've never been a user of vaseline, it's aways seemed a messy process. I'll answer it an a couple of hours. It's surprisingly easy, home made and very cheap. Philip.

    Well "Kevin D Burns" has one part right. I used very high ISO film [was ASA in those days] to get increased grain. next part is what I had in front of the lens.
