Lately I am posting my expired film adventures here and that is because I was pretty lucky with these rolls (as we never know what will happen, in most cases). This time I would like to present you a roll of Fuji Superia 400 that expired in 2005 and again I got it from NARC (check his ebay for good stuff!). I decided to shoot it at ISO 100 and seems it was still underexposed, probably due to the conditions it was stored in. However, this is still one of the rolls I liked to see scanned, also because nearly all the photos were shot on the weekend of my birthday – my girlfriend, Joana, took me to Alentejo, to a beautiful village of Évoramonte. We visited another town near by – Estremoz and I also took some shots on the way back. See for yourself, if you like the results and if you can feel a bit of the Alentejo vibe.
I finally got some more color film developed (well, nearly 3 weeks ago, but I was lazy) and I would like to present to you the results I got from an expired roll of Kodak Ektar 125, which I shot at ISO 64. Now I see it could be better with ISO 32, but hey, with expired film you never know. I must say I don’t always apply the rule of +1 stop of exposure per each 10 years after expiration and I’m OK with it. As usual, this film I obtained from the famous NARC Expired Film – check it out, if you’re into it.
All the photos from that roll have strong marks of being stored in not perfect conditions and are underexposed. We can see an interesting color shift and in general I like the results, even though the shadows are not rich in detail.
Without further talk, the photos are below.
Most of the times I visit new places during holidays or weekend escapades I avoid touristic hot-spots and I never buy any souvenirs except a postcard for myself. I don’t send postcards from the places I visit to my family or friends and it’s because I am not a great writer – it happened in the past that I sent a postcard that looked like this:
Greetings from *INSERT PLACE*
WojtekTrue Story, Bro
Now I know I am more into more authentic and close to the nature type or retreat, that’s why I take photos for my own postcards.
Exactly one month ago I went with my girlfriend (also a photographer – IG and WWW) to São Miguel island and we stayed for a week in Mosteiros. It was active and at the same time relaxing week for the both of us and we miss that place since we came back from there.
We took some rolls of film with us and I had my DSLR with me as well, but surprisingly, we did not run out of film nor did I need to use my secondary memory card. Guess we just needed the rest we got there?
In my previous post you can see a special photoshoot we did with Joana (and more on her Instagram), but the more colorful and holiday-vibe photos can be seen below. We have some prints in offer, if you are interested in buying some of those and we will be happy to share a small part of our trip with you – just let me know!
PS. These photos are from 2 different rolls – Kodak Gold and Kodak ColorPlus.
Sintra is beautiful. But way too packed with tourists and it was very difficult to find an empty street. I left the crazy old town center and as I often do, I kept walking without knowing where I’m heading. I captured only a handful of photos, guess I might need to go back in winter, when it’s not so busy over there.
I spent some nice family time last week in Southern Germany, but because of not too friendly weather during my stay I took just a few photos. Nevertheless, have a look and feel free to give a comment. The castle on the photos is called Hohenzollern Castle.
