Lomography Diana F+ • Fuji Provia 400F, expired in 2005 & cross-processed 

{Summer Past}

Between the amount of my photographic time devoted to Amanda’s Daily Photography in 2016 and all the film from Amanda Goes to England, I had a little backlog of 2016 film that I didn’t get developed until 2017. This roll from my Lomography Diana+ was one that got put on the back burner. When I got the film developed, I felt the photos practically screamed “SUMMER!” Which is appropriate since that’s when they were taken 🙂

 

Pinhole photo – the camera got moved accidentally midway through the exposure, which is why it looks as if it’s a double exposure

I feel like this must’ve been a pinhole shot – this camera doesn’t focus closely otherwise

{Redscale Zoo}

I recently made some DIY redscale film with Fuji Superia 400 that expired in 2007 (thrift shop film!) The majority of that roll was shot at the Memphis Zoo this summer, and I honestly am in love with the results. I like to shoot my redscale film at a much lower film speed than is indicated on the film box so I get more muted tones than deep reds and oranges. I guess the age of this roll of film meant it was harder to get enough exposure to keep the shots from going red and orange, but I feel it really worked in this scenario.

{Testing the Batch} Expired Fuji Sensia 200

As I explained in the “Testing the Batch” post for my expired Fuji Sensia 400, I also got several rolls of Sensia 200. Like the 400, the expiration of the Sensia 200 is also unknown to me. So I loaded a roll of it into my Lomography La Sardina and just crossed my fingers that it would be okay for cross-processing!

Conclusion?

probably shouldn’t have used a camera with fixed exposure settings to test this film, since I know the La Sardina is pretty “light hungry.” But, if you love grainy, cross-processed toy camera photos, you probably LOVED these! As for the film itself, I like the results, though I will probably use my remaining stock of it in cameras that allow me to set the exposure myself.
