Expired Film Are Miracle! I loaded with the expired Fujichrome Velvia 120 with ISO50 into my Holga camera and the results came out with unexpected.
I started to love 120 films after seeing some of the great medium-formatted photo from every Lomographers here since the year of 2007. This was my 3rd roll of the Holga-shooting and I have tried to use this crazy expired 2003 film, Fujichrome Velvia Professional RVP120. Usually the results for Fuji Velvia slide film will turns out reddish or magenta in your frame after doing the cross-processed development. But this time, it’s totally different. All of my shots has became bluish. Is not because of the weather, developing chemical and under/over exposed. But is that because of the expiration date itself??
Tell you what, this film has brought me a great surprise! In my mind, I was just keep thinking the outcome for this roll will be red/magenta. Conclusion, an expired film will always giving us & your lovely Lomo camera a magic shows (again)! I just love that!
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
Just recently I asked myself why I would want to write about a film like the Fuji Instax Mini, because usually this film is the only one available for Fuji Instax cameras. But then it hit me! It can be an alternative to many other instant films, since I can load almost any film into my Diana F+, other medium and 135 format cameras, and of course the Fuji Instax Mini.

Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
I went to Shinjuku Park in order to celebrate spring and enjoy the Japanese tradition of "hanami," which means the "contemplation of cherry blossoms."

I obtained a sepia effect on my photos, and I felt as if I just traveled through old Japan.

By now the first rolls have been shot and developed!
