An oldie here, taken on my Nikon FM with 28mm lens on Ilford FP4 125 ISO film, so old I have no idea what aperture or shutter speed I used. (more…)
I was given some expired film, Truprint ISO 400, by my girlfriends dad a while back. I have no idea how out of date it was, there was not expiry date printed on it, but my best guess would be sometime around 2004 as it had been stored with a load of APS film with expiry dates ranging from October 2003 to October 2004. It hadn’t been stored in a fridge or anything like that, just a drawer for at least ten years so I was in two minds about using it, I’d always wanted to shoot with really old, expired film, but always assumed if it hadn’t been stored correctly it would be far too degraded to give any images that weren’t just a oddly coloured mess. How wrong I was. Below are a selection of images I took using the Nikon FM with 28mm lens, some have beautiful grain and some have a wonderful warm, sepia glow, in my opinion all are a resounding success.
