{Late Entry} Expired Film Day 2017

Oops, I did it again (many a blog entry starts this way actually.)

Like last year, I shot for Expired Film Day on March 15. Like last year, I waited awhile before getting the film developed, thus falling outside the deadline to submit photos to the Expired Film Day website. (OOPS!)

This year, I again used my Yashica-Mat TLR camera. I chose to shoot a roll of Kodak Pro 1000 film that expired in the year 2000. I don’t know what kind of magic the photo lab worked when they developed and scanned these photos for me, but I think they look very cool and prettier than I expected!

(I rated it as 200 when metering, to account for its age)

{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.
