A Roll of Film

It turns out that any random old film you've had rolling around in a desk drawer for the past ten years is maybe not the best film you could be using?? Who could have guessed?! Either way, I do still have a few rolls kicking around so we're just going to have to make the most of it! Even if I did realise while editing these images from a roll I had developed earlier this year that this particular film is pulling VERY green, especially in low light. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. It's all just part of the unpredictability of shooting film, isn't it?

Although, I wouldn't mind a little bit more predictability, so if you shoot 35mm, please tell me your colour film recommendations! Because once I've used up all this Agfa pro 200 I got with a lomo camera when I was a teenager, I will probably be looking for something a little less expired.

In the mean time, here are some photos!


  1. I think they look great!
    Agfa does tend to shift towards green usually anyway I've found, so not surprised its greener when expired.
    I like fuji superia films and also kodak is always reliable! The lomo colour films are usually good too if you can find them reasonably priced

    1. Thank you! I'll look into the ones you've suggested and do a little research when I finally finish all the expired rolls I still have!
