Expired is Always Beautiful in Film

14

You would either love it, hate it, or even be scared of it! For the uncertainty expired film can give is always a big surprise for us Lomographers!

It could turn out dark or sometimes even blank! For expired film is a trick we always love to discover. But no matter how unsure it could get, we’d always try it and heck, get the best results we’ve ever had in our analogue life!

That’s why in this week’s selection of photos by the Community, we bring you 70 amazing analogue photographs which were shot with expired film. Some were even a decade old!

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures.

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise. For many, it's often the first thing that comes to mind long after the final credits have rolled out.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.

    Photo Stories: Kīlauea - Volcanic Eruption by russellmcbride

    Venturing into an area when there's volcanic activity is a feat that can only be either courageous or foolish. One thing's for sure, though, it's the kind of experience that not many people share and—should one escape unscathed, like russellmcbride and his friend—a highly rewarding one at that.
