Expired film can be so unpredictable. Sometimes you can shoot with 10 year old film and the results are amazing and other times, not so much. As a general rule of thumb, you should shoot expired film one stop slower than box speed for every decade past the expiry date and you should also bracket your shots. These were shot at Sarah’s parents’ farm in New Zealand with 16 year old expired Konica Centuria film. I’ve shot a few other rolls of Centuria before and they tend to do the same thing: the colors shift towards the purple end of the spectrum.
I shot these at Heritage Park with Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 (original emulsion).
When I was in France this summer, I took along a roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 35mm film. LomoChrome Turquoise is modelled after Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple film which in turn is modelled after Kodak Aerochrome (this post by The Phoblographer explains it all). LomoChrome Turquoise produces some wild color shifts, but it isn’t cross-processed nor is it an infrared film like Kodak Aerochrome. The effects are created through dyes in the emulsion. All in all, I love the way blue sky is rendered orange, but I hate the turquoise skin tones. You can find a review with many sample shots at Emulsive.
These shots of the 800+ year old cathedral in Bayeux, France were taken with a Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim.
