Analog: Expired Film

AAA025 - Version 2
The slow living in Hawai’i gave me plenty of time to experiment with various unusual film formats, like the Redscale film I mentioned last week.
This time, I played with a roll of expired film my friend, Mike gave me. It was found in a bag of camera equipment his friend’s dad gave him. Most of it had been sitting in storage for decades. This particular roll expired in about 1992.

The idea of using expired film is interesting to me because I’ve heard of odd things it can do to the colors. In this case, it was more of a direct fading than anything else, but with some adjustments on the scanned images, I managed to get these. There’s not much to them, but the low contrast and deteriorated patches give a really interesting vintage look that I like.
