Expired Motion Film

Fujicolor Eterna 250D | Canon AE-1 50mm f1.4

Got the film from a pal from facebook – The Negative, who is a online film reseller. And the film was developed by Darkroom8. I like the warm color of the photos when they were taken under a very bright light condition.

However, when the photos were taken under a cooler light condition, like shortly after the sun set ( in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the sun set around 6:45pm) or somewhere that doesn’t has direct sunlight. Then the overall of the color will be a little more blueish.

And here are some shots that were taken around 7:00pm.film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong

Here are some shots taken during the golden hour. This was taken around 5:30pm.

And I found that when taking shots indoor with a warmer light environment, the colortone becomes a little bit yellowish. The photos will turn out to be warmer.film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong film walk photography photowalk Malaysia fujicolor eterna 250D color negative cliff choong

 

Overall, I feel like shooting on expired film is very inconsistent  and very hard to get the same result even though shooting the same subject with the same setting. Well, I don’t mind to shoot on this some times. ^^
