Overexposed and Expired

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Have you ever shot on expired film? The images that come back are always so dreamy- same with overexposed shots. Top right and bottom right images were both shot on expired polaroid film. The first picture of Cannon Beach is overexposed and I'm not sure what's going on with the one below that but it's amazing.

  3. These are very dreamy indeed. I love the washed out feel. I've shot on expired film once before, but they didn't turn out anything like this! *sigh*

  6. Yes! I love the look of these. I think I have plenty of expired film I could give a try. Sadly, I would not expect these sort of results from me.

  8. Quite ethereal. I'm experimenting from time to time with expired disposal cameras that I find in OP shops or markets. It's always fun but I never had such great, dreamy results....

  12. I have a jar of WAY expired 35mm that I am just itching to use.

    If it goes well I'm sure you'll see.

    Love the shot of Cannon Beach - that's the beach we always go to when we travel over to the coast from Portland.

  13. I have never shot with overexposed film, but these shots make me want to! How gorgeous, right? I feel like it gives it a totally different depth than other photos, just because they're fun in a vintage way.

    Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

  14. That bottom left is stunning! I have never shot with overexposed film, either---only just an amateur photographer so have been a little nervous about it. These shots make me re-think it though. Really, what is to lose? Nothing---but the gain, like that shot, would be beautiful.
