I stopped by a camera store when visiting Tanzania a couple of years ago and talked with the owner about my Holga. He showed me his stock of film we came across a couple of rolls of expired film. I've tried to buy expired film from eBay, but have always been outbid. However, the owner wouldn't let me buy any and instead gave it to me for free. The one showcased here is a Kodak ProFoto 100 that expired in 05/2001. (FYI - When that film expired i had just become legally able to buy a drink).
So yeah it's really expired.
Flash forward to a year and a half later and I finally felt like I was ready to put the film to work. I mean cause if you have film that is 12 years old what's the harm in waiting till it's 13?
And because it takes me apparently forever to do anything, I kept the film in my camera for 4 months. And took photos in two states. And then waited 3 months to get developed.
Do you guys see a trend? I'm trying to overcome my film laziness. It, like my life, is a work in progress.
I do love these photos. The ones that showcase snow were taken at Sugarbowl Resort in Lake Tahoe. The other ones were taken on the Illinois River Bluff trail. The texture from the light and grain make them both awesome and creepy.
What are you guys up to?
