Jezza’s Film Follies (When Good Film Goes Bad)

IMGP1614

I seriously don’t know when I got this roll

So I finally finished one of my very very old rolls of Kodak Elite Chrome I’ve had laying around.  How old you ask? Probably close to 11 years.  I vaguely remember purchasing this along with 2 rolls of Ilford black and white film, which I just only finished recently. 

On top of that, I didn’t freeze these rolls,so….

One of the first shots, this was the Maryland countryside, of course it would’ve looked better If I hadn’t used super expired film

But still I was skeptical, I was hoping that something usable will come out, so I loaded her up on my Nikon F100.  It took me about a month to finish the roll. Perhaps if I had finished it on a timely manner, the magenta shift would not have been so apparent on the earlier frames.

This photo of Cheesecake was taken last Saturday. As you can see there’s still a ton of magenta,but not as pronounced as the photo above of the Maryland countryside.

All in all, I was half expecting it to be like this, but I just had to see what came out of it.  I can easily, and will probably turn all of these into black and white.  The shots themselves came out good, though a tad underexposed on some shots. I have a few more rolls that are a few years old, perhaps it’s time to get around to using those.

Anyhow, below are more pics from this expired roll of Kodak Elite Chrome 200.

Taking flight. I really love this shot even though I cut off the right side. I might work on this more later on.
