Well, they are if you get to shoot a beautiful model! So this was just a little while ago when I had the fortune of taking a few photographs of Michelle. We had fun, and I never shot inside a mall before. Okay, also a little bit outside.
The film I used was a well-expired (2007) Foma Equicolor Premium 400, but it doesn’t really show. Unless these warm green-brown tones are the result of it’s old age. And you know what, I like it. It compliments the fall colors and certainly Michelle’s face and clothing. I wonder if I can find some more of this stuff somewhere..
See these (and more) really big on Ello. Thanks, Michelle!
This is something truly horrific. Perhaps it’s me, perhaps it’s the film. It’s not the camera, and probably not the lab, they’re good at what they do. So I’m leaning towards the film. Modern-day produced black and white medium format film, made in China. And it shows. It’s horrid. The backing paper shows, and in a gory, grainy & gruesome way. Which is a pity because behind all that garbage hides a sharp and contrasty film.

Film used: Shanghai GP3 100, ✟ 2014. Camera used: Yashica Mat 124G TLR.
What to do? I’m trashing the rest of this film I have in the fridge. After I dry my eyes. GP3 is not for me.
I’m posting full rolls of (mostly expired) medium format film I exposed while walking around, somewhere. Just for the hell of it. I like looking down through my Yashica and see the world from a different perspective. And I like trying out expired rolls of film, so it’s a win-win for me. First off is a roll of Agfa Ultracolor 50 that expired in 1999. Not that you could tell.
