Back in March this year just before all this Covid 19 lockdown stuff I entered the Expired film day competition like I have done on previous years.
The whole point is to get out and shoot as much old expired film over a 3 day weekend then submit 3 of you best images with the chance to win some lovely film prizes.
I was luck to win a prize last year so I was very surprised to win again this year considering the really high standard of the other entries.
I have loads of expired film but I came across some old ilford XP1 on eBay so I was excited to give it a go and with fingers crossed manage to capture something worthwhile.
Somehow I messed up and shot 1st frame on my Mamiya 645 while getting it out of my bag with the lens cap on so only ended up with 14 final images.
I rated the roll at 100 iso and it was developed/Scanned by filmdev
I asked them to push it one stop in development as well if poss and explained what I was trying to do with the images.
