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.
One more expired roll of film that was part of the pack provided by NARC and resulted in a very good set of photos (for me)! The roll I used was valid until 1992, so I set ISO to 25 (+2 stops), but after scanning it turned out it should have been even slower, one more stop would do. I used Silverfast for scanning the negatives and since there is no profile for this particular film type, I did my own color correction.
Below is the rest of the photos from this roll, I hope you like them!
Back in 2019 I decided to take part in a collective exhibition organized through a Facebook group – Lisbon Analogue Photography. The initial plan was to show our photos in 2 different spots – Livraria Ferin and Ler Devagar – both are libraries located in Lisbon, Portugal. The final decision was that exhibition consists of 7 photographers and each will display 6 photos taken with a film camera. As the title says it was photos of Lisbon presented through the unique vision and framing of each one of us.
Unfortunately, the exhibition at Ler Devagar had to be closed early due to the current situation and instead being on display for nearly 3 weeks, the place was closed after around a week or so.
Nevertheless, it was a great experience for me and I believe the other photographers share the same feeling. Even more special for me, because it was my first exhibition ever. At this point I would like to thank each one involved in organizing the whole thing and allowing us to display our frames at their spaces.
No more talking – below is a collage of my photos I printed for this exhibition.
I decided not to add any titles and just leave it for the viewer for interpretation.

I had about 2 hours to use on photographing and I decided I will go to Marques Pombal in Lisbon and walk around. The goal was to capture some buildings with pixação, but it turned out they have been cleaned. So I kept on going – from Marques Pombal along Avenida Liberdade to Restauradores and got some nice shots of other buildings in the area. This time all of them are in 1×1 format and in black and white. Enjoy 🙂
More photos from my photo walk with @lxis.ph in August, this time more architecture in black and white.
Not many people still shoot film nowadays. No wonder… It’s expensive and we all know that price plays huge role in our ability of maintaining our hobbies. Recently price of a single roll of film went up due to some producers leaving the market and others explaining the production costs went up as well. But there are still a lot of awesome photographers using analogue techniques to show us the beauty of shooting film. To name a few of my favorites: Estevan Oriol, Mateusz Hajman, OzGFK and Lisbon based photographer Diogo Smith.
While I’m waiting for the scans of my first roll dedicated to just one model, here are some of my favorite color captures I took over the years. And I will keep on shooting film, as much as I can (afford).
